We are excited to announce the 2nd annual Med-Peds Informational Webinar Series starting on Wednesday, 7/14 at 9PM EST! 

Initially started in summer 2020 during the height of the COVID-19 pandemic, this webinar series was created as a collaborative effort between the National Med-Peds Residents’ Association (NMPRA), the Medicine-Pediatrics Program Directors Association (MPPDA), and the Executive Committee of the American Academy of Pediatrics Section on Med-Peds (AAP-SOMP). Its purpose was to provide the medical student community with a virtual opportunity to explore Internal Medicine-Pediatrics as a career option, learn more about the Med-Peds community, and met individual program leaders from across the country.

This year, we hope to continue providing you with excellent content and resources meant to cultivate your interest in Med-Peds and support your future careers. Please see below for more information regarding details of specific sessions. We will be sending out individual Zoom links and passcodes through the listserv before the start of each meeting. We plan to record each session and post them on this page for your reference.
