Our curriculum provides a well-balanced training experience for individuals seeking a career in combined internal medicine-pediatrics. At the completion of the training program, graduates will have maximum flexibility for career options in primary care, academics, or categorical/combined subspecialty training.  Residents rotate in 3-month cycles between internal medicine and pediatrics during all four years of training.  The program balances ambulatory, inpatient and subspecialty rotations with progressively increased supervising responsibility. In your elective time, you will have the opportunity to explore individualized interests including research, global health, quality improvement, advocacy and medical education. Med-Peds residents are also able to participate in categorical Internal Medicine tracks. Available tracks include clinical educator, health disparities, primary care, enhanced clinical skills track, and women’s health.

Daily Education

Education is a top priority for our Med-Peds residents and faculty. The Internal Medicine and Pediatrics Categorical programs each offer daily morning report, noon conferences as well as weekly department-sponsored grand rounds. As a Med-Peds resident, you have flexibility to attend conferences specific to personal career interests on medicine, pediatrics, or hosted by subspecialties.

Our Med-Peds training program hosts bimonthly noon conferences attended by our Med-Peds core clinical faculty, residents and UAB School of Medicine Med-Peds Interest Group members. Speakers are invited to discuss topics pertinent to internal medicine and pediatrics and cover a range of medical topics as well as topics related to transition, wellness, quality and safety, professional and personal development. We also have biannual town halls which provide residents the opportunity to discuss improvements to the program.
