Services > Internal Medicine-Pediatrics > Internal Medicine-Pediatrics Residency


Our goal is to prepare you for a primary care practice, but also provide a foundation for subspecialty fellowship training. Our program was started in the early 1980s and currently accepts four positions each year. About 75 percent of our graduates practice in primary care roles and the remaining have pursued subspecialty training (majority in combined fellowships).

Strengths of our program:

  • We are integrated with two equally strong internal medicine and pediatrics residencies.

  • We have a history of quality residents with about 19 percent chosen as chief residents (in either internal medicine or pediatrics) and 23 percent accepted into fellowships of their choice.

  • Currently, we have ten attending med-peds physicians. Another has completed a fellowship in adult pulmonary/critical care medicine and another completed a fellowship in neonatology.

  • We have a complete patient experience involving tertiary, county, and veterans administration hospitals.

  • We have our own freestanding continuity clinic, monthly meetings, and an opportunity to perform combined subspecialty rotations.

  • We are affiliated with Loma Linda University School of Medicine and our residents have the opportunity to interact with and teach medical students.

  • Residents have the opportunity to practice "whole person care" with their patients.

  • There is strong administrative support from the respective hospitals, departments, and program directors.
