What is Med-Peds?
Med-Peds is a 4-year residency that combines Internal Medicine and Pediatrics, making a physician eligible to complete board exams in both specialties. Physicians in the Med-Peds specialty care for patients throughout their lives and are trained to work as primary care physicians, as Internists or Pediatricians, or, with further training, as subspecialists in Cardiology, Infectious Disease, Immunology, Women’s Health, etc. For example, a Med-Peds physician may build life-long relationships caring for patients with Sickle Cell Disease starting at birth and continuing throughout adulthood. Med-Peds provides a unique and versatile experience that offers physicians flexibility and the opportunity to pursue long-term care with their patients.
Med-Peds collects dues with Family Med IG, Peds IG, and Internal Med IG. Returning members must pay dues each school year. Please Venmo @Pierce-Publico with Med-Peds as the description or pay Pierce Publico in cash.
