WHY BROWN MED-PEDS?

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 over 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. Check out the Resident, Faculty, and Alumni pages to see the full breadth of Med-Peds potential realized!
