The University of Colorado’s Combined Internal Medicine and Pediatrics program was developed to provide innovative educational opportunities ranging from rural and urban primary care, hospitalist training, or future subspecialty career paths. It builds on the strengths of the categorical programs, which both highlight innovative programming and many subspecialties ranked among the best in the nation. In addition, we have a growing number of combined Med-Peds trained faculty dedicated to providing personalized mentorship to our residents throughout their training.
We seek to provide trainees with outstanding clinical training in both internal medicine and pediatrics. Our curriculum is divided into three-month blocks, alternating between Internal Medicine and Pediatrics. Residents serve in supervisory roles from the first day of their second year, and work as colleagues alongside their categorical counterparts. Residents are able to take part in many of the unique educational experiences offered by the categorical programs (including academic half days, longitudinal tracks and pathways, and career-focused educational blocks) as well as Med-Peds-specific sessions.
Residents have the freedom in their last two years to mold their training to meet their long-term career goals. Options include elective experiences, research, new program and curriculum development, scholarly presentations, and teaching.
Our program is the perfect fit for future leaders in Med-Peds who seek excellent clinical training, individualized mentorship, and a broad range of scholarly opportunities.
