Combined internal medicine and pediatrics
The combined medicine/pediatrics residency is a four-year program sponsored jointly by the departments of medicine and pediatrics at Loma Linda University Medical Center and Loma Linda University Children's Hospital. Its purpose is to provide broad, in-depth training for individuals interested in primary care of both children and adults.
This four-year program alternates four-month block rotations between medicine and pediatrics, and exposes the house officer to all the core general medicine and pediatric rotations as well as each of the subspecialties of both departments. A combined medicine-pediatrics continuity clinic is chiefed by medicine-pediatrics attending physicians and maintained throughout the entire training period. Residents interact successfully with house officers of both residencies on a continuing basis. Upon successful completion of this residency program, individuals become board eligible in both internal medicine and pediatrics. Successful graduates have chosen to either practice combined internal medicine and pediatrics as a highly qualified primary care physician, while others have pursued subspecialty fellowships in either internal medicine or pediatrics.
