Mario Cisneros, MS4 – Edward Via College of Osteopathic Medicine – Carolinas Campus
Going into med school I had no idea that Internal Medicine and Pediatrics could be combined. It was not until the later part of my first year of medical school that I found out about this possibility. I attended the northeast NMPRA meeting in Baltimore, MD in 2011 with a bunch of classmates. I became very intrigued in Med-Peds as I got to learn more about the field and the multiple directions you can take going into it. I got to meet many Med-Peds residents and faculty from several programs, all of which had nothing but great things to say about the field and training. Since then I kept it in the back of my head, and it wasn’t until I completed both my Internal Medicine and Pediatrics rotations early during my third year that I realized that Med-Peds is the specialty for me. Soon after I scheduled my Med-Peds fourth year elective at Christiana Care in DE, and I am now completing my Med-Peds rotation. I am very excited about entering the Match.
