The Internal Medicine-Pediatrics Residency Program at WSU was initiated in 1980 and discontinued in 2013. The program was one of the first combined medicine-pediatrics residencies to be approved by both the American Board of Internal Medicine and the American Board of Pediatrics in the new accreditation process for combined training programs. The program was centered around a strong primary care curriculum with a combined adult and pediatric ambulatory practice comprising one of the largest components (30 percent).
Ninety percent of our graduates chose careers in primary care; 11 percent of our graduates choose careers in academic medicine; 40 percent choose collaborative practices with family physicians.
The residency program closed in June 2013.
