Why Med-Peds at Brown?

We are recruiting committed, compassionate, and curious residents to care for our diverse patient community, develop excellent clinical skills and explore the unlimited potential of combined Med-Peds training.

Med-Peds has been a part of the Brown residency programs for more than 20 years, building on two strong categorical programs.  The program’s core faculty and Division of Medicine-Pediatrics provide clinical care in all of our hospitals and primary care clinic, and advise and mentor our residents.

Our weekly Med-Peds Forum brings residents and faculty together for sessions on clinical cases, scholarship, advocacy, teaching opportunities, and Med-Peds guest speakers.

Residents are the primary physicians for their patient panel at our continuity site, the Medicine-Pediatrics Primary Care Center. Our site has served the Providence community for 20 years caring for children, adults, and families. We received NCQA-Level III Patient-centered medical home recognition in 2017.

We emphasize individual development, supporting residents in identifying and furthering their passions. Certificate tracks offered include: Global Health, Research, Clinician Educator, and Women’s Health.

Residents and faculty are critical to shaping the program, and are recruited to teaching and leadership roles in the hospitals, medical school, local, and national organizations. Please look at the Resident and Alumni pages to see the full breadth of Med-Peds potential realized!

"When Dr. Toll began my interview by asking about my undergraduate thesis, which she had already searched for and read, I was shocked. No other program had shown such a unique interest in my writing and hobbies. If this was any indication of the level of faculty involvement and mentorship available at Brown, I knew at that moment that this was the program for me."
Sean Sanker
"Brown maintains an incredibly inviting yet academic environment, which has helped me develop as a clinician while also truly enjoying the people and the experience along the way."
Erin Baroni
"As a residency applicant, I immediately gravitated to the unique educational opportunities that Brown offers: the refugee intake clinic, BRIGHT pathway, and clinician educator track, among others. These experiences had an enormous influence on me in developing my professional identity, leading me to become a combined med-peds teaching hospitalist and primary care provider right here at Brown!"
