The University of Colorado’s
Combined Internal Medicine and Pediatrics program was developed to provide
innovative educational opportunities ranging from rural or 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. We
also have combined Med-Peds trained faculty dedicated to providing personalized
mentorship to our residents.
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
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
