    Louisville is a great place to spend your years in training. It has been called one of the most livable large cities in the country by the U.S. Conference of Mayors. It's place that's good for families as well as single people (GQ's 2012 Manliest City in America), with plenty of entertainment, culture, sports and more than 2,500 great places to eat. And don't forget the fastest two minutes in sports, the Kentucky Derby at Churchill Downs.

    Pediatric Residency Program

    Click the above link for more information

    The pediatric residency program at University of Louisville is home to 76 residents from thirty-nine medical schools in twenty-nine states and three countries.

    Our program is structured to permit the physician to develop broad clinical expertise in general and primary care pediatrics as well as in-depth competence in the pediatric sub-specialties. We accomplish this by offering three progressive levels of training characterized by increasing complexity of clinical problems, increasing responsibility for patient care and increasing availability of elective time. The program mixes hands-on, bedside training, didactic sessions, one-on-one consultations, small group sessions and online learning that strives to meet all learning styles of our residents as well as getting broad exposure to specific areas that might be of interest as formal career paths.

    Message from Program Director, Dr. Laura Workman:

    We are pleased you have decided to visit our site! We hope this website will help you get to know more about our program.

    For students who are researching residencies, you are about to embark on the journey of residency which will be the basis of your future medical career. As you join the group of physicians who practice Med-Peds, you join a dynamic and diverse group of outstanding primary care physicians, sub-specialists, clinical educators and leaders in healthcare.

    The University of Louisville School of Medicine has offered training in Combined Internal Medicine & Pediatrics since 1987. We combine two exceptional parent departments with the University of Louisville Categorical Internal Medicine and Pediatrics Programs into an integrated residency. Our goal is to train doctors who are able to provide outstanding, compassionate clinical care to both adults and children while impacting their communities. Both programs provide a wide range of clinical exposure, opportunities for research and strong faculty. Our residents are exceptional, motivated teachers and highly skilled physicians. Our graduates are well-prepared for all the opportunities that Med-Peds training should offer including primary care, hospitalist medicine, academic medicine and subspecialty training. Our graduates are practicing these here in Kentucky and beyond.

    What are the strengths of our program?! First and foremost, it's our residents and faculty.

    Our faculty of both of our parent departments and our Med-Peds department are enthusiastic teachers and are passionate about providing thoughtful, evidence-based, state-of-the-art, compassionate care to our patients. We are also fortunate to have substantial support from Med-Peds trained physicians in the community, many of whom serve as gratis faculty and provide a unique private practice experience to our residents.

     Feel free to browse our website or visit for additional facts about the program and information about the Louisville area. We have a UofL Med-Peds Facebook and Instagram (@LouisvilleMedPeds) that feature some of our day-to-day activities. Thanks for visiting!

    Child Clinical and Pediatric Psychology Doctoral Internship Program

    The Child Clinical and Pediatric Psychology Doctoral Internship Program at the University of Louisville School of Medicine offers a one year, intensive training program in clinical child and pediatric psychology.  Our primary objective is to prepare psychology interns for entry into advanced postdoctoral training or professional practice in child clinical and pediatric psychology.  The program is designed to equip interns with the skills required to provide clinical and psychological assessments, diagnosis, treatment, consultation, and other aspects of mental and behavioral health care with children, adolescents, and families on an increasingly independent basis.  This includes developing expertise in the foundations of evidence based practices, cultural diversity, child development, and issues in professional development.

    The internship is conducted within the Division of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry and Psychology (CAPP) in the Department of Pediatrics and is supported by personnel and facilities within the Bingham Clinic and Norton Children's Hospital.  The child psychology faculty maintain primary responsibility for planning and conducting the program and supervising interns.  Interns also receive instruction from the child psychiatry faculty and collaborate with professionals from other disciplines, resulting in extensive exposure to multidisciplinary approaches.  Training is further enhanced by opportunities to work alongside other trainees in the department.  The division also offers a child and pediatric psychology practicum, pediatric psychology postdoctoral fellowship, and child psychiatry residency.  Additionally, CAPP faculty and learners participate in the lectures and clerkships for medical students/residents/faculty in the School of Medicine.
