The Duke Medicine-Pediatrics Residency Program is a four-year program offering diverse training in both adult and pediatric medicine with substantial experiences in primary care and subspecialty medicine.

Our diverse group of trainees come from all across the country and are hard working, enthusiastic, dedicated and outgoing. They excel in clinical care, education and leadership and are widely recognized at the institution for these efforts.

The Med-Peds Program is well integrated in both departments with both of the categorical residency programs in Medicine and Pediatrics. Program leaders collaborate closely with our colleagues to ensure outstanding educational experiences for our trainees.

The Medicine and Psychiatry Residency Program is a combined five-year program offered by the departments of Medicine and Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences. The program  is approved by both the American Board of Internal Medicine and the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology.

Residency training is spread over five years with equal time devoted to Medicine and to Psychiatry.  The program leadership and residents are well integrated into both departments.  Trainees benefit from the excellence and breadth of the two outstanding categorical training programs. After completion of the residency program, graduates are eligible for board certification in both disciplines.
