Medicine-Pediatrics

Combined programs in Medicine — Pediatrics offer students the opportunity for in-depth training in both Internal Medicine and Pediatrics. While this career path provides exceptional training for primary care, Med-Peds also provides the option of completing subspecialty training in Internal Medicine, Pediatrics, or both.

At the end of the four-year training program, physicians are eligible for Board certification in both Internal Medicine and Pediatrics.
