Medicine Pediatrics Residency Program


Our core mission is to offer an academically-oriented training program that prepares exceptional physicians to provide high quality individual care and improve the health status of populations. The program residents and faculty, Departments of IM and Peds and Lifespan strive to:


  1. Provide for collaborative training of highly-skilled clinicians in Internal Medicine and Pediatrics prepared to care for children and adults, individuals and families, while maintaining the depth of training and expertise in each field.
  2. Create an environment supporting academic scholarship and advocacy efforts that reflect the unique Med/Peds perspective on care for patients across the lifespan.
  3. Prepare residents for leadership roles as educators and academic clinicians in general and sub-specialty disciplines of Internal Medicine and Pediatrics through mentorship, teaching experiences, and opportunities for leadership roles in institutional, community, local, state and national programs.

Why Med Peds at Brown?  Our integrated residency builds on two strong categorical programs to fully develop the unique potential of MedPeds. Faculty and residents are highly engaged in clinical care and scholarship in health care transition, disparities and diversity in healthcare including refugee health, LGBTQ and transgender care and reproductive care, wellness and primary and sub-specialty care.  The Medicine Pediatrics Primary Care Clinic has served the diverse Providence community for 20 years as a shared-model, PCMH-accredited practice where residents and faculty care for adults, children and families in a single continuity setting.  Med/Peds Forum brings our faculty and residents together weekly for shared content on scholarship and advocacy, clinical curriculum, teaching opportunities and guest speakers.  The program offers certificate tracks in Global Health, Research and Clinician Educator.


The residents and core faculty are critical to shaping the program itself, as well as being recruited to teaching and leadership roles in the hospital, medical school and local and national organizations.  Please look at the range of scholarly activities our residents are engaged in and the full Med-Peds breadth of potential realized in their post-graduate roles!
