In our program, you will alternate between specialties every 3-4 months on services such as general wards, consults, newborn nursery and intensive care units including pediatric, medical, cardiac and neonatal. In addition, your weekly half-day continuity clinic will alternate between IM and Peds, giving you the opportunity to hone your outpatient skills alongside practicing outpatient internists and pediatricians. When rotating between Internal Medicine and Pediatrics you will have several Personal Learning Blocks(PLBs) that are tailored to individual interests and learning needs. In addition to daily didactics with either Pediatrics or Internal Medicine, we have weekly Friday Med-Peds conference.
