As a resident in the Med-Peds Residency Program, you’ll rotate monthly either on pediatrics or medicine for four months and then switch. This allows two full winters and two full summers on both medicine and pediatrics. You’ll have intern duties for 16 months because of this schedule (though you’ll be paid as a PGY-2 after 12 months) so you can experience as an intern each rotation you will eventually supervise.
