Medicine Pediatrics Residency Program

Newsfeed

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 faculty and residents, the categorical departments and the institution 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? Med/Peds residents and faculty at Brown are deeply involved in the ongoing operation and evaluation of the program. Ours is an integrated residency, which attempts to go beyond simply creating parallel programs in each of the two specialties. The Medicine Pediatrics Primary Care Clinic allows residents and faculty to care for adults, children and families in a single continuity setting. Founded in 1998, the clinic continues as a thriving and successful endeavor. Med/Peds forum for residents and faculty is held twice per month. The forum offers conferences, journal club and formal sessions on a variety of topics ranging from an approach to the medical literature to discussions of patient-practitioner interactions. The faculty and residents participate in on-going curriculum development, having received state and national grants and presented national workshops on quality improvement in primary care of chronic conditions, health care transition and mental health services in primary care settings.
