History & Mission Program Leadership Program Overview Our Residents Applicants Instagram

We welcome your interest in the University of North Carolina Combined Residency in Internal Medicine and Pediatrics! Our philosophy of training residents in the disciplines of Internal Medicine and Pediatrics is rooted in the history of the program.

Integration in Medicine and Pediatrics

Since our program’s inception, we have strongly supported the philosophy that residents in combined training are most successful when fully integrated into each department. Internal Medicine-Pediatrics (Med-Peds) residents are given the same supervision, responsibilities and opportunities as their colleagues in the categorical medicine and pediatric residency training programs. With these opportunities, we have found that Med-Peds residents have thrived, successfully becoming the composite of what is best in both disciplines.

Unique Med-Peds Opportunities

We recognize that combined training is a rigorous but unique opportunity. Though fully integrated into each of the departments, the residents also have a unique identity. The Med-Peds identity is supported with Med-Peds trained faculty, conferences/Grand Rounds and combined clinical rotations and continuity clinic experiences.

Training for Diverse Career Paths

Our residents are exposed to a wide variety of clinical experiences and emerge from residency well prepared for either primary care clinical practice or further sub-specialty training. We emphasize a scholarly, evidence-based approach to medicine that provides skills and training to support lifelong learning.
