Med-Peds Residency Program

Our four-year, medicine-pediatric residency program is designed to provide a comprehensive educational experience in both internal Medicine and pediatrics. Our ACGME accredited program is one of only a few combined med-peds programs in the western United States. Graduates will be able to function as generalists in practice or in academic settings and will also be sufficiently prepared to enter fellowship training in areas shared by the two disciplines.

Our program’s structure allows the resident to meet subspecialty and core requirements, while also allowing freedom to formulate their schedule to suit their individual needs and career goals.  More>>
