Med-Peds Electives

      • We have a two-week Med-Peds Elective rotation that each resident takes once a year, PGY-3/4 residents have their rotation in the Fall and PGY-1/2 residents in the Spring. Our residents do not have back-up obligations during this half-block. This affords us the opportunity to have clinic-focused time, protected time for personal appointments, group community service and wellness activities and Med-Peds content days covering a range of topics including Transitions in Medicine, Health Care Disparities, Wellness, Business and Leadership and more.
      • We have combined rotations that have been carefully crafted to achieve exposure to Med-Peds specific objectives while making efficient use of time in the busy schedule of a Med-Peds resident Many of these were prompted by resident interest and we are always happy to entertain new ideas! 
        • Combined Neurology, Combined Pulmonology, Combined Musculoskeletal, Transitions of Care
        • AHEC (Area Health Education Center) Community Rotations, Allergy/Immunology, Dermatology & Palliative Care can also incorporate the care of adults and children.
