Why Med/Peds at OUSCM?
Medicine/Pediatrics is an integrated four-year post-doctoral training program through which one becomes eligible for board certification in both internal medicine and pediatrics. Physicians trained in Medicine/Pediatrics bring a unique perspective to the care of patients of all ages. Combined Med/Peds training provides focus and depth of experience in both disciplines. Med/Peds physicians exemplify the skills and wisdom of both pediatricians and internists.
No other discipline provides a greater range of options to graduates. The rigorous curriculum is designed to prepare graduates to pursue a broad array of career and practice options: from primary care to further training in any of the subspecialties of internal medicine or pediatrics (or increasingly in combined Med/Peds subspecialty fellowships); from academic practice to medical mission work; from research to health policy.
There are a number of valuable resources for those interested in more information regarding combined Med/Peds residency training. We suggest you view the "Medical Student Guide to Combined Internal Medicine and Pediatrics Residency Training," which includes links to a number of other resources.
