About the Combined Medicine/Pediatrics Residency Training Program


Welcome to the UC San Diego Combined Medicine/Pediatrics Residency Training Program. Our program provides outstanding, comprehensive training in both internal medicine and pediatrics in an intellectually stimulating and supportive, educational environment. As a renowned academic center, UC San Diego provides an excellent academic atmosphere for balanced training in both Departments of Medicine and Pediatrics, allowing our graduates to pursue either primary care, hospitalist positions, academic medicine, international health, or sub-specialty fellowships.

UC San Diego provides a spectrum of training facilities within San Diego and also provides opportunities for training outside San Diego and internationally. This provides for a wide variety of clinical experiences and diversity in patient demographics both socio-economically and culturally. Our curriculum is structured for flexibility, allowing more elective time in the latter part of your training for special career interests to be emphasized. You will be able to find more detailed descriptions of our training program within this website. Please start with our welcome letter from our Program Director.
