Emilie Tomkinson rising MS4 from Ross University (in Buffalo NY now)
Tom Davis (Geisinger PD)
44:59
all programs ensure that you get the minimal required inpatient rotations to sit for the boards and allow for further customization based on location and programs aims
Jonathan Tolentino
45:01
Thankfully ICU times are limited I the core curriculum, and med-peds residency programs are required to have a third of the time set aside to outpatient medicine. What is always fun is that many Med-Peds programs have unique Med-Peds ambulatory rotations.
Emilie Tomkinson MS4
45:06
emilietomkinson@mail.rossu.edu
Katie Skolnick MS~2
45:14
Do you have to sacrifice one branch of the med/peds residency if you decide to pursue a fellowship, or are there fellowship programs that allow you to get dual certified in adults and pediatrics?
Jonathan Tolentino
45:26
Yes! You can definitely do combined fellowships
Suzanne McLaughlin Brown Program Director
45:32
you can do it!
Jonathan Tolentino
45:35
Many do Med-Peds ID, Med-Peds Endo, etc.
Angela Zhang (She/hers)
45:39
Angela Zhang, MS4 Brown (can only join for a bit, on nights, but excited to catch what I can!) Am interested in advocacy opportunities/the space for electives when compared to categorical, esp if pursuing a subspecialty. I’m especially interested in advocacy and social justice.
Tom Davis (Geisinger PD)
45:46
many combination fellowships are out there now and growing every year
Emily Shipley MS3
46:06
I unfortunately missed the last webinar geared more towards MS3 and MS4s; anyone know how I can find that recording?
Jayne Barr AAP-Section of Med-Peds
46:10
there are combined fellowships
Tom Davis (Geisinger PD)
46:21
if you are interested in an area the best part of med peds is that you will be able to carve out the niche
Suzanne McLaughlin Brown Program Director
46:36
Angela - love that question, there are so many opportunities (and need!) for advocacy; a future NMPRA/MPPDA session will have a specific focus on this as well
Jonathan Tolentino
46:40
Many Med-Peds residents are very involved in social justice and advocacy. Many of the residency programs have rotations dedicated to advocacy, and many residents have a strong social medicine/social justice focus.
Ellen Lubbers
47:07
I also missed the last seminar- is it possible to access the recorded of the May 27th session?
Tom Davis (Geisinger PD)
47:23
one of the main ways to get into med peds is wanting to do advocacy for all ages. if you can imagine it you can do it
Max Cruz
47:35
Yup! We will have the recorded zoom from last webinar up on the NMPRA website (medpeds.org) in the next few days
Blake Lowe - PGY4 Geisinger

Jayne Barr AAP-Section of Med-Peds
48:26
there is a good balance of inpatient and outpatient rotations. some programs can create inpatient and outpatient elective experiences (ie neurology, cardiology, pulmonary, infectious disease for example). your Med-Clinic time and ambulatory rotations also provide outpatient experiences
Allison Etling

sai
50:43
how can one progress towards global health after med-peds residency?
Suzanne McLaughlin Brown Program Director
51:02
For fellowships - there are combined fellowships - and we often have residents propose and see these developed specifically to recruit the medpeds residents. And there are also many residents who opt for an adult or pediatric fellowship but carve out a niche allowing for dual practice (e.g. adult hematology with a focus on sickle cell disease care; pedi oncology with a focus on reproductive health in pedi cancer survivors)
Jonathan Tolentino
51:07
Easily! Many residents find the skillset in med-peds fits the needs of global health.
Jonathan Tolentino
51:32
With four years of residency, you have more flexibility in your schedules to do international rotations, and many have tracks dedicated to global health.
Tom Davis (Geisinger PD)
51:56
there are fellowship programs in global health and many create their own path following graduation. you get to decide the best path for you. the dual training makes you able to care for anyone that shows up
Suzanne McLaughlin Brown Program Director
52:15
Notably in under-resourced settings, internationally and in the US (witness the covid experience), physicians with breadth of quality training who can address diverse needs are highly valued.
Ron Magliola PD MetroHealth
52:26
Med-Peds is perfect for global health because of the breadth in training. I'd suggest looking into programs with global health training opportunites. There are easy to find on the websites. During the residency, makes sure to take advantage of global health... consider completing a certificate course in global health through the americal society of tropical medicine and hygiene.
Jonathan Tolentino
52:30
For MP - there are plenty of residents who go into specific needs (e.g. Cardiology - to do congenital cardiology) or go into fellowships like ID and Nephrology that are needed in both adult and pediatric medicine.

Recertification - we are dually boarded, so you will have to recertify both boards. However, both IM and Peds are creating new recertification pathways after initial certification making it easier to do maintain certification.

Hello all! Question for the PDs and current residents, what would you say is the most important difference in personality between a Pediatrician and a MedPeds?
kruse330@umn.edu
55:21
Where can we access the recordings? Thank you!
Jonathan Tolentino
55:24
Outpatient - all have a continuity clinic, and you have opportunities to do outpatient subspecialty rotations.
Tripti Nagar
55:31
Are advocacy & social justice pathways more elective-based rotations in residency or are most programs requiring them?
Kaitlyn Brown
55:32
You mentioned “double majoring” and the pros of that for MedPeds, which is how I feel so thank you for that analogy!! I’m curious if the PDs out there could discuss how they might feel about an individual that is applying to Med-Peds, but also peds or IM?
Ron Magliola PD MetroHealth
55:35
Med-Peds residents want to follow their patients for life!
Sasha Kapil

all programs have a large portion of their training programs as outpt. many will train you to be a fantastic primary care physician and have extra experience in free clinics or other clincial settings
Jonathan Tolentino
56:31
All residencies have to have some sort of advocacy component in their curriculum. Some residencies have certain pathways focused on social justice and advocacy, both in terms of journal clubs, regular longitudinal education programs, and specialty rotations.
Tripti Nagar
56:44
thank you!
Angela Zhang (She/hers)
57:14
@Jonathan how would we be able to discern which residencies have what kinds of advocacy? Would that be on the website or best learned from talking to residents?
Nina Madjer
57:39
what is the best way to find out if residencies have certain fellowships or fellowships at all?
kevinlozo
57:39
Kevin Lozo, MS4 from Rutgers. kwl41@njms.rutgers.edu Nice to meet everyone, and thanks everyone for being here and providing this info!
Jonathan Tolentino
57:43
It would be both. It’s on their websites, and you can see from the work from each of the residents.
Suzanne McLaughlin Brown Program Director
57:48
Good question on primary care -- there are some programs with a very specific focus on primary care, so take a good look at the Mt. Sinai and Hopkins programs - but there is significant primary care in all of the trainings, and the programs all have their own primary care "personalities" in terms of their continuity clinic experience, their advocacy, where clinic admin and public health fit into rotations and the overall focus of the program, etc...
Tom Davis (Geisinger PD)
57:56
some will list it on the website. if this is important to you I would ask every program when you interview

Friend couldn’t make it, but could you add Emily.Leong@stonybrookmedicine.edu
Mary Catherine Turner, MD
58:18
Yes, ACGME actually regulates that Med-Peds residents have a certain amount of ambulatory training as well as robust experience in resident continuity clinic
Ron Magliola PD MetroHealth
58:23
The different areas of advocacy are typically dictated by the parent programs as well as the institution. This should be reflected on the website, chat rooms and by talking with the residents at each program.
Ellen Lubbers
58:33
Could you comment on research in med/peds?
Tom Davis (Geisinger PD)
59:01
you can research pretty much anything you want across the age continuum.
Jonathan Tolentino
59:02
But many Med-Peds programs have a strong advocacy component as part of the core curriculum.
Leighton Elliott, PGY3 Geisinger
59:07
we love research! it's the reason I chose medpeds over family medicine.
Leighton Elliott, PGY3 Geisinger
59:27
*one of the reasons
Andrea Silvas
59:28
From what I understand, many electives are taken out to allow completion of main requirements in 4 years. How common is it for female med/peds residents to become pregnant during residency and what year would be best for that?
Jonathan Tolentino
59:29
Yes! Plus, you have access to the robust resources from both IM and Peds to do research.
Suzanne McLaughlin Brown Program Director
59:41
So many research opportunities! somewhat because of the breadth of questions and depth of curiosity that Medpeds residents bring to the table. and our residents are often particularly effective at serving as bridges that build research teams including pedi and adult specialists.
Nina Madjer
59:44
Yes, thank you so much!
Farrah Gaston
01:00:36
Farrah Gaston, fgaston@auburn.vcom.edu
Tom Davis (Geisinger PD)
01:00:46
we have had residents who have started or expanded families in all years. we are flexible and work with you. I would say do it when you are ready
Bobby
01:01:22
How is the transition from PGY1 year to PGY2, will a med/peds resident feel maybe a little behind compared to their categorical counterparts due to the fact that they have been splitting their time between both specialities?
Leighton Elliott, PGY3 Geisinger
01:01:29
My wife and I had two kids in residency! You can do it!
Josh Morris, MS4, Dell Medical School
01:01:59
What about our residency application catches PDs’ eyes? I’ve heard research is needed for the large academic centers, but also don’t quite know what is really important to you all (coming from a school without an MP program)
Emilie Tomkinson MS4
01:02:07
thanks for answers regarding family planning! good to hear : )
Mary Catherine Turner, MD
01:02:26
Agree with when to start a family, we will work with you! and you will not loose out on electives, usually residency is extended by the time that was (much needed) taken off so that you have a chance to complete all the training requirements.
Jonathan Tolentino
01:02:29
Passion! What matters to you and drives you to be a wonderful resident!
Tripti Nagar
01:02:29
Hadn’t thought about family planning, but it is important going forward. Thank you for addressing it!
Tom Davis (Geisinger PD)
01:02:40
most feel a little behind with the first transition to upper level but there is so much overlap on how to run a team, navigate ehr, etc that you quickly pick up. there is crossover of knowledge too
Lizzie Clark
01:02:55
You mentioned that Med-Peds residents tend to match somewhat better than their Med or Peds counterparts, but for specialties like critical care where you may be shaving off some of those months in the ICU during residency through the dual program, are Med-Peds residents still as competitive? - Thanks!
Jonathan Tolentino
01:03:09
Very much so
Anu (Cornell) #WhiteCoats4BlackLives
01:03:24
How many MP residents are confident in their long-term career goals when applying/beginning their program vs. discovering their interests during residency?
Tom Davis (Geisinger PD)
01:03:30
yes. there are opportunities for doing additional months in the ICU plus you get am extra year to do research too
Jonathan Tolentino
01:03:32
And they have a breadth of experience in ICU care that really gives the med-peds resident a great breadth of knowledge.
Max Cruz
01:03:41
You actually have quite a lot of critical care training, you generally have I think 8 months of your residency training in ICU settings between medicine/peds
Jonathan Tolentino
01:03:44
I’ve seen a Med-Peds ICU/PICU/Interventional Fellow in the past, it’s awesome!
Ron Magliola PD MetroHealth
01:04:04
So many different aspects of the application catches a program "director's eyes." Generally we are searching for residents who are flexible, adaptable, come from many different backgrounds, wish to impart change and bring a wide range of experiences to the residency program.
Max Cruz
01:04:07
i think you have more critical care training built in at baseline than a categorical would (unless they loaded up on electives)
Blake Lowe - PGY4 Geisinger
01:04:08
**absolutely! We do less electives but we are often sought out by the categorical when they have questions or need advice!
Tom Davis (Geisinger PD)
01:04:12
I would say most do not know where they will be at the end of the residency when they interview but as they gain experience and see things most know by the end of their second year
Suzanne McLaughlin Brown Program Director
01:04:13
THe critcal care fellowships have been VERY excited about medpeds residents -- they carry 8 months of ICU experience into fellowship - and an extended understanding of risks of the ages of the categorical age spectrum...so more comfortable taking care of a young adult in the ICU, or an older adolescent in the PICU
Jonathan Tolentino
01:04:15
@Anu - I think most interns have an idea, but their careers move in different ways as they go through rotations, but that’s okay!
Mary Catherine Turner, MD
01:04:36
One of my grads is going to Rochester, NY as a combined MICU/PICU fellow! and long history of residents matching in PICU or MICU, etc
Jonathan Tolentino
01:04:39
That’s where mentorship, discussions with residents during residency’s and with the program director helps residents figure it out, but that’s what we’re here for!
Elyse Jensen, PGY2 Geisinger
01:04:43
It’s exciting to see how much your knowledge truly does overlap on both sides. You have such a unique, longitudinal perspective!
Lizzie Clark
01:04:47
@Jonathan Tolentino That sounds amazing!! And thanks, all!
Tripti Nagar
01:04:49
How does it affect residents in programs that have a 12 month intern year vs 16 month intern year in terms of feeling prepared going forward in the program? Does one have more advantage over another?
Max Cruz
01:04:49
i know 2 picu fellows, 1 micu fellow, and a couple attendings in the picu and micu at my institution alone who are MP trained
Kaitlyn Brown
01:04:53
With the ACGME merger, do you anticipate the number of DOs represented in Med-Peds to increase across the country?
Chance Najera
01:05:02
For the primary care oriented, are there elective opportunities for OBGYN training?
Jacob Vaught OMS4 - VCOM
01:05:06
Hello! I'm Jacob, OMS4 at VCOM in Blacksburg, VA, the AAIM just recently suggested a Standardized Letter or Evaluation for this application cycle, will that be adopted by Med/Peds? Thank you!
Brianna Doherty, she/her/hers
01:05:15
Is it still possible to have a focus on women’s health? Or is that better suited to family med?
Jonathan Tolentino
01:05:32
@Tripti - 12 mo vs. 16 month is seamless. I trained with a 16 month “intern” year,” and felt that it was fine.
Tripti Nagar
01:05:40
thank you!
Tom Davis (Geisinger PD)
01:05:43
you can truly build meaningful women's health into your primary care role
Jonathan Tolentino
01:05:44
Yes, you can definitely have a focus on women’s health!
Angela Zhang (She/hers)
01:05:49
Going off of that are any MP docs pregnancy termination trained?

Is their anyone here that has completed a combined fellowship in adult/peds heme/onc or know someone who has? I would love to pick your brain as far as how you combine both and what your day to day practice looks like. Thanks!
Tom Davis (Geisinger PD)
01:06:26
I would hope more and more do are interested in training in med peds

At what point during the 4 years does a MP resident start taking on the leadership/teaching roles that a 3rd year categorical would have?
Jonathan Tolentino
01:06:35
Yes - we have a med-peds heme/onc trained physician here at Miami.
Max Cruz
01:06:47
one of our pgy4s will be starting combined heme/onc at st jude next year
Jonathan Tolentino
01:06:48
Her focus is on transplantation for sickle cell patients.
Jonathan Tolentino
01:06:52
Totally doable.
Tom Davis (Geisinger PD)
01:06:55
one of our grads just started her med peds combined hem onc fellowship
Ron Magliola PD MetroHealth
01:06:55
Plenty of opportunites to focus on women's health. Certainly an important focus on advocacy and adolescent care. The extra year greatly helps support your career.
Jonathan Tolentino
01:07:10
Cincinnati has a history of training several combined med-peds heme/onc residents
Max Cruz
01:07:14
and we have a combined heme fellow, as well as a few peds heme/onc docs who are MP backgroudn
Jessica Wilson
01:07:27
Would it be possible for a pediatrics resident or IM resident to apply to Med-Peds as a PGY2 if they decide they want a combined residency experience?
Niraj Sharma
01:07:30
Many who are Hem/Onc trained focus on AYA care and adult survivorship
Jonathan Tolentino
01:07:41
And sickle cell
Jheison Giraldo
01:07:57
What are the fellowships that train in both peds and adults
Ron Magliola PD MetroHealth
01:08:02
We're going to have a session specifically for applicants interested in fellowship. You will be able to hear from med-peds fellows.
Jonathan Tolentino
01:08:02
Transitions from IM or Peds to MP is doable, but we still recommend going in as an MP intern.
Sindhu Chadalawada
01:08:06
What highlights on an application stick out to PD's in particular, research aside?
Tom Davis (Geisinger PD)
01:08:16
there is a list on medpeds.org
Mary Catherine Turner, MD
01:08:24
Residents typically have a chance to have senior level roles mi-way though the PGY2 year
Leighton Elliott, PGY3 Geisinger
01:08:35
@bobby, I plan to do adult hem/onc and focus on adolescents and young adults
Max Cruz
01:08:45
essentially you can generally create any combined fellowship (The only one that is somewhat resistant is combined cards, generally to get a MP flavor will do peds cards and then an adult congenital heart fellowship)
Max Cruz
01:09:11
combined ID, heme-onc, critical care, nephrology are some of the more popular/common ones that come to mind
Leighton Elliott, PGY3 Geisinger
01:09:11
to do both adult hem and onc would be quite difficult, but a few programs do exist and one of our residents in doing it now!
Brittany Brown

Angela Zhang (she/hers)
01:09:36
I’d love to know if anyone is Med-Peds GI! Or categorical adult GI who was MP trained
Suzanne McLaughlin Brown Program Director
01:10:18
Angela, that is a goal of Julia Ding here at Brown - you should reach out to her!
Niraj Sharma
01:10:21
GI is a great place for Med-Peds, especially to care for patients with IBD throughout the lifespan
Tom Davis (Geisinger PD)
01:10:22
there are a few that trained here and are still practicing go
Tom Davis (Geisinger PD)
01:10:25
gi
Kali Chiriboga,OMSIV
01:10:30
Same @Angela Zhang, but for MedPeds Rheumatology!
Max Cruz
01:10:30
there's a cinci grad Jordan shapiro who is MP and combined GI, he's on twitter as well
Tripti Nagar
01:10:34
how do we register for the meeting on the 6th?
Max Cruz
01:10:41
he focuses on IBS/IBD i believe
Jonathan Tolentino
01:11:03
He did adult GI

the family planning question is wonderful to get out there - and while I won't argue you can "have it all, all at once", will say that I had two children during residency, one in fellowship and one as an attending - there's some luck involved and alot of family support and prioritizing -- but residency and family are NOT an either/or...it can be done. and there are many residents and graduates you can talk to for their experiences.
Leighton Elliott, PGY3 Geisinger
01:14:19
we've had several female residents have kids in residency. one of my co-residents just had 9 weeks off and she won't need to extend
Tom Davis (Geisinger PD)
01:17:05
I would hope so!
Ron Magliola PD MetroHealth
01:19:12
Someone asked about when med-peds residents take on supervisory roles... this typically happens around the same time as the categorical folks... for instance, PGY-2 MP residents will do some light supervisory rotations, PGY3-4 residents will have full supervisory responsibility.
Kaitlyn Brown
01:20:07
When you mention Department letters, do you mean department chairs from home schools or from an individual that is attending at a medicine or pediatrics program?
Jonathan Tolentino
01:20:18
Yes - departmental letters
Kaitlyn Brown
01:20:29
Thank you!
Suzanne McLaughlin Brown Program Director
01:20:40
many schools use a letter from chair OR clerkship director, or a group effort
Sindhu Chadalawada
01:21:25
For IMG's, are letters from US clerkships preferred or department letter from their home schools?
Sindhu Chadalawada
01:22:41
Thank you!

Thoughts on NBOME suspending the PE testing until 9/1? Many students may do their exam closer to Match Day or even after the date.

Yes, agree... We look forward to considering the "whole you!" without the bias of the USMLE score.
Kelsey Fischer
01:27:00
Dr. Doolittle, that is one of the best things I've heard in a while!
Nina Madjer
01:27:01
But IMGs cant enter residency without ECFMG certification which still requires CS. Can someone confirm this?
Tom Davis (Geisinger PD)
01:27:30
ecfmg has not decided it made their final decision yet
Jonathan Tolentino
01:27:34
ECFMG is working on a solution - we hopefully will have more information soon.
Nina Madjer
01:27:46
