Curriculum

The Med-Peds training program is designed to provide a comprehensive four-year training program that will enable graduates to be board certified in Internal Medicine and Pediatrics. Through early exposure to medicine and pediatric subspecialties, residents have the opportunity to explore a wide variety of career opportunities.

The program follows the Med-Peds guidelines agreed upon by both the American Board of Internal Medicine and the American Board of Pediatrics. The goal of the curriculum is to offer comprehensive training for any of several possible career paths, including primary care Med-Peds, subspecialty training, academic medicine and even research.

Our schedule for residents is divided into three-month blocks, alternating pediatrics and medicine for their first two years of training. For the last two years, residents change rotations in four-month blocks. This allows for some seasonal variation as residents become more comfortable switching back and forth between the disciplines. The curriculum is flexible to help accommodate the needs of each individual resident.
