Combined Residency Programs

Through collaborations within and beyond our school, we offer innovative interdisciplinary residency programs to meet the challenges of today’s complex health care system.

This four-year program prepares you for a career providing medical care to both adults and children. The majority of the program’s graduates pursue careers in primary care, although some go on for further training in subspecialties such as rheumatology, infectious disease and endocrinology.

All aspects of the program are fully integrated into the medical school’s internal medicine and pediatric residency programs. Our residents rotate through several major, distinct hospitals, gaining a broad exposure to the range of medical problems of adults and children across all social strata.

The program meets all the guidelines of both the American Board of Internal Medicine and the American Board of Pediatrics. Upon completing it successfully, you will be eligible to sit for board examinations in both internal medicine and pediatrics.

In conjunction with the School of Public Health and Health Professions, we offer a combined four-year internal medicine/general preventive medicine residency. The internal medicine residency provides the first two years of training in this program followed by two years of training in preventive medicine, including the academic and practicum phases.

Upon completing the program successfully, you will receive the MPH or MS degree and be expected to meet the requirements for certification by both the American Board of Preventive Medicine and the American Board of Internal Medicine.

Applicants must meet the requirements of, and be accepted by, each component program.
