Application Process: Allopathic students apply through VSAS.  Currently, we only accept osteopathic students from Nova University.  Students/observers from international medical schools are not eligible for this elective.

Course Overview: Combined Internal Medicine and Pediatrics is a unique specialty that trains physicians in the care of patients of all ages.  The elective aims to give students exposure to Med-Peds in an urban primary care practice setting.  Students will see routine care of newborns, infants, children, adolescents and adults, as well as care for patients with complex pediatric diseases as they transition into adulthood.

Rotation Goals: Students will receive (1) exposure to the Med-Peds specialty and the unique opportunities the career can provide, (2) broad clinical training in the care of adult and pediatric outpatients in a major urban setting and (3) exposure and didactic training in transitional care of the complex pediatric patient.
