The Med-Peds Residency Program at the University of Utah School of Medicine was initiated on a trial basis in 1989 with two resident trainees who successfully graduated in June 1993; as a result of the initial success of the program, the residency has expanded to matching three resident trainees per year as of 2006.  Graduates of the training program have successfully achieved certification from the American Board of Internal Medicine and the American Board of Pediatrics and have pursued careers in academics, Med-Peds primary care, Med-Peds combined subspecialties, and Med-Peds hospital based practice.
