Since loans are often burdensome, Could you speak on salary distribution regarding Med peds vs peds vs internal med?
Ronald Magliola PD MetroHealth (He/Him)
55:50
Hope you are enjoying the session. We are ready for your questions!
Allen Friedland, PD Christiana/Nemours
56:38
There is not great data on Med-Peds salaries since we a small group to study and the distribution of adult and peds care you provide
Allison Ashford/ PD Nebraska
57:54
@Kenneth: hard question to answer especially because “we” (med peds docs) have such varied careers. It depends a lot on 1) are you inpatient vs outpatient 2) do you see adults, kids and/or both 3) did you do a fellowship.
Valerie Figueroa Cruz
58:15
Are there any summer internships or externships that provide an in depth experience in Med-Peds?
Shauna Wassmus
58:45
Is there anything that you know now that you wish you had known before starting a med-peds residency?
Kenneth Lopez
01:00:09
Compared to your counterparts in peds or internal med, how much more difficult is the combined program? Could speak on work life balance?
Nicholas Wilson
01:00:55
Are there any qualities or accomplishments that stick out in Med Peds applicants?
Ronald Magliola PD MetroHealth (He/Him)
01:00:57
About summer internship and externships... Many program will sponsor student observations. About one-third of med-peds programs offer MS-3/4 student electives. Some even offer virtual electives. You can also choose to do electives at programs with med-peds residencies.
Allen Friedland, PD Christiana/Nemours

For me and other fellow DO students, do any of you have any advice on taking COMLEX and/or USMLE step 1 or 2 (especially with step 1 being pass/fail now)?
Colby Dendy, East Carolina/Vidant, APD
01:06:22
@Radhika - I will add this question but make sure you come to the DO specific webinar coming up!!
Nicholas Wilson
01:06:33
How important are away rotations in Med-Peds when applying?
Ronald Magliola PD MetroHealth (He/Him)
01:08:02
For away rotations... we know that these are difficult to get. They are not supremely important. I think just show that you gravitate toward taking care of patients of all ages. But definitely reach out to program directors!
Valerie Figueroa Cruz
01:10:59
