This four-year special residency program, sponsored jointly by the Department of Medicine and Pediatrics, was established in the early 1980s. During the four years, residents participate in the basic services, continuity practices and electives of the two departments. Upon completion, Med-Peds physicians are eligible for board certification in both specialties.
