29:04
Go Transitions!
Lenny Feldman- Hopkins PD (He/his)
29:58
That’s because we are pediatricians!
Lenny Feldman- Hopkins PD (He/his)
34:31
One of my residents just went from her NICU rotation to geriatrics! Can’t get more med-peds than that.
Ronald Magliola PD MetroHealth
34:45
At the end of four years, it all comes together! The extra year compared to categorical IM or peds really matters.
Tom Davis (Geisinger PD)
35:36
And you really see all the overlap when it comes to patient care by the fourth year and many Med Peds 4th years are looked at as the leaders in their systems
Jaimie Rogner
36:01
I truly cannot thank you all enough for being here tonight! This is wonderful.
Lenny Feldman- Hopkins PD (He/his)
36:08
Poor Northwest :-(
Natalie McGinnis, MS4 UT Houston
36:33
they are missing out
Sue McLaughlin (she/her) Brown PD
37:19
There are many medpeds-trained docs working in academic centers throughout the NW, just not training programs (yet!)
Lenny Feldman- Hopkins PD (He/his)
40:50
We bring a very different perspective!
Tom Davis (Geisinger PD)
42:32
Newer data is showing higher rates of MP graduates going into fellowships and a growth in combined fellowships as well (completing adult and pediatric fellowships combined)! Anything is possible after MP training
Lenny Feldman- Hopkins PD (He/his)
45:46
May be statistically significant, but we did better than the categoricals last year!
Ronald Magliola PD MetroHealth (He/Him)
47:23
We make categorical residencies stronger! Our colleagues learn from us and we bring expanded differential diagnosis to the team.
Tim Brady (Indiana University Med/Peds)
48:42
And they meet med/peds residents and see how awesome they all are...
Sue McLaughlin (she/her) Brown PD
49:19
#agree with Tim, our residents are the primary source of recruiting students to medpeds
Tom Davis (Geisinger PD)
49:42
Also with the ever changing landscape of adult disease in pediatrics and complex pediatric patients aging into adult medicine MP has become to go to people to provide education and care!
Tom Davis (Geisinger PD)
52:14
If you do not have a local MP interest group, reach out to any program. We are all willing to help! All of our programs are on the www.medpeds.org site and social media now. We all want to help
Aidyn Dupuy
52:22
As STEP becomes P/F, how important will research be in getting into a program?
Kenneth Lopez
52:43
how does med peds contribute to the current efforts regarding emphasis on preventative medicine
Tom Davis (Geisinger PD)
53:39
@Aidyn I think it is more program specific and your future goals specific. Being a well rounded candidate that has some research, some involvement in community service and other clubs really help you stand out
Kalika Mahato
53:46
Is it possible to work as a med/peds hospitalist without peds hospital fellowship?
Tom Davis (Geisinger PD)
54:42
@Kenneth Med Peds are often being looked at to lead preventative health roles in health systems. Many MP graduates and candidates have MPH degrees and that has really lead to some interesting system level changes moving forward.
Supriya Reddy
54:54
Are there any programs longer than 5 years?
Supriya Reddy
55:04
longer than 4 years
Tom Davis (Geisinger PD)
55:06
@ Kalika yes it is. Peds hospitalist fellowship is not required to work as a MP hospitalist
Tom Davis (Geisinger PD)
55:11
No all programs are 4 years
Ronald Magliola PD MetroHealth (He/Him)
55:12
All MP programs at 4 years.
Ronald Magliola PD MetroHealth (He/Him)
55:24
jinx
Aidyn Dupuy
55:30
Thank you!
Nicholas Wilson
55:32
How difficult is it to be continually proficientin treating adults and children as opposed to your internist and pediatrician counterparts who only work with a specific age demographic?
Tom Davis (Geisinger PD)
55:36
Haha. Land and the fastest fingers!
Kenneth Lopez
56:05
Thank you!
Laurine Tiema-Benson
56:10
Will there be more of an emphasis on Step 2 scores than Step 1 being Step 1 is moving towards P/F? Will programs be prioritizing students with Step 2 scores when initially viewing applications in the end of September/early October?
Ronald Magliola PD MetroHealth (He/Him)
56:12
I'd say that we get good at all of these aspects of treating IM and peds. Know that these is a lot of overlap.
Supriya Reddy
56:20
Thank you!
Dava Szalda, PD UPenn/CHOP
56:24
We are biased - but medical education, quality improvement, population health, advocacy . . . all span the lifespan and Meds-meds can be leaders there
Tom Davis (Geisinger PD)
57:20
@Nicholas: Much of medicine is continuing learning and growing your knowledge base. You will learn your favorite resources and conferences to keep your skill set very high. MP physicians do not fall behind their categorical partners over their career
Oscar
57:28
How has the recent change in the requirement of a peds hospitalist fellowship affected the number of student interested in med peds?
Ronald Magliola PD MetroHealth (He/Him)
58:08
As far as the questions about step scores, our programs have pretty universally adopted a holistic approach to recruitment. The step scores are being deemphasized in favor of finding the right persons to lead our specialty into the future.
Tom Davis (Geisinger PD)
58:20
@Laurine All MP programs are taking a total holistic approach to applications and already are looking at Step 1 and 2 scores as pass fail as is. I would not worry about Step 2 scores at this time
Padmapriya Muthu
58:26
How welcoming are medpeds programs to imgs in general? Since the statistics aren’t very encouraging
Laurine Tiema-Benson
58:41
Thank you!!!
Jane Trinh, PD Duke
59:26
Agree with Lenny - the ability to feel like you can support each trainee individually!
Tom Davis (Geisinger PD)
59:59
@Padmapriya MP programs are very welcoming. All programs take a holistic approach. I believe it is more of a numbers game with only approximately 400 positions nationally and lower IMG applicants to categorical programs. If you are passionate about MP reach out to programs, talk to MP physicians and show your interest.
Padmapriya Muthu
01:01:13
Thank you!
Omar El Charif, M4, URochester
01:01:21
Love this question and have it too. Thank you Nicholas.
Reesha White
01:01:48
Are there opportunities for medical students to get involved with various NMPRA initiatives? If so, is there a particular point of contact for this? I sent an email regarding this for the Diversity initiative on the NMPRA website but haven't heard back yet. I figured I would ask here.
Tom Davis (Geisinger PD)
01:03:54
@ Reesha I would reach out to the Med Students and recruitment @ info@medpeds.org and Community Outreach at @ outreach@medpeds.org
Jocelyn McGill
01:05:06
What are some of the goals for the new DEI Corner? Excited to hear more about it.
farha
01:06:41
Hello, how have Med-Peds physicians who practice in primary care and see both adults and children set up their practice? For example, do they schedule both groups on different days, is their clinic and waiting area set up a particular way?
Laurine Tiema-Benson
01:10:28
Can Med-Peds physicians practice in outpatient clinic and still work in the wards?
farha
01:10:34
Thank you so much!
Tim Brady (Indiana University Med/Peds)
01:10:59
Yes - I do it
Tom Davis (Geisinger PD)
01:11:07
@Laurine: yes they can. I have a grad that is doing that this year and several others interested. It is a matter of finding the right position in the system you want to work in. It is a great career
Santoshi M Kandalam
01:12:06
Do any of you have global health experiences/stories that made you really appreciate your medpeds training?
Ronald Magliola PD MetroHealth (He/Him)
01:12:15
So flexible.... so many of us transitioned to IM hospital positions during the COVID pandemic. A few people really loved being back in hospital medicine and are now doing a few weeks a year.
Nicholas Wilson
01:12:33
Of course this varies between institution, but do Med Peds physicians usually do research alongside their practice?
Tom Davis (Geisinger PD)
01:13:58
@Nicholas If you want to do research as part of your career you can find a way to carve it out. I have a grad who just completed a dual Nephro fellowship and now is starting her research career with some clinical nephrology as well. MP training will allow you to carve out whatever career you want. Many of my grads have added research as part of their career later on including working in population health, informatics and other areas
Nicholas Wilson
01:14:24
Great! Thank you!! @Dr. Davis
Laurine Tiema-Benson
01:14:36
Thank you so much!!!
Tim Brady (Indiana University Med/Peds)

Jennifer Walsh - PD UT Southwestern
01:17:54
We have Med-Peds faculty doing research in several areas that cross the lifespan - obesity, diabetes, culinary medicine - and they have really been able to be bridge builders promoting strong collaboration between Pediatrics and IM departments that might otherwise be more siloed
Sue McLaughlin (she/her) Brown PD
01:18:19

Jaimie Rogner
01:18:30
