Residents see patients in all 4 year in the combined Med+Peds Clinic, where they see all ages in the same clinic and participate in an integrated Med-Ped Curriculum. The Med+Peds clinic not only allows us to see families (parents, children, grandparents, etc.) it also allows us to see many of the patients transitioning from pediatric subspecialty care to adult subspecialty care. For this reason, we see a significant number of very interesting conditions and help to maintain their continuity of care as they transition their care from pediatric to adult neurology, gastroenterology, hematology, endocrinology, cardiology, etc.
In addition, we are fortunate to follow our patients from the wards to the clinic. As a resident you will be able to assign your ward patients to your continuity clinic at all years of training. This means you have the ability to follow your patients all four years of your training! During pediatric months, the resident is assigned to continuity clinic one-half day per week on average. During medicine months, the resident will be assigned to their continuity clinic at least one-half day per week during their +1 week.
The resident is assigned to an ambulatory outpatient rotation once a year through both Medicine and Pediatrics.
Residents do a combined Med+Peds Rotation all 4 years where they visit pediatric subspecialty and adult subspecialty clinics within the same week to learn valuable lessons from the comparison and contrast of pediatric to adult neurology, gastroenterology, hematology, endocrinology, cardiology, etc.
The residents also go to Med+Peds relevant/interesting clinics such as Adult Congenital Heart Clinic, Transitional Rheumatology Clinic, Adult Cystic Fibrosis Clinic, and Med+Peds Continuity Clinic.
This is the same rotation we offer as an elective to Medical Students.
