Med-Peds SIG aims to provide students with the opportunity to explore the field of Combined Internal Medicine & Pediatrics, by hosting lunch talks, providing shadowing opportunities, and volunteering in the community.
What is Med-Peds?
Med-Peds (or Combined Internal Medicine & Pediatrics) physicians complete a four year residency which prepares them for a double board certification in Pediatrics and Internal Medicine. After residency, a Med-Peds doctor may choose to practice primary care or he/she may decide to subspecialize by completing a fellowship (cardiology, gastroenterology, etc). Med-Peds physicians can practice in both hospitalist and outpatient settings.
