Program Description

Pediatrics and Medicine rotations are taken in alternating 3-4 month blocks throughout the 4 years.  The curriculum adheres to the requirements of the American Board of Internal Medicine (ABIM) and the American Board of Pediatrics (ABP) with regards to combined training in Internal Medicine-Pediatrics.  We will provide 4 combined Medicine-Pediatrics PG-1 slots through the residency match. We can be identified by NRMP code 1150700C0.


Our program is housed within the University of Illinois at Chicago College of Medicine, the nation’s largest medical school.  The UIC campus is located directly west of the Chicago Loop in an area surrounded by the historic Little Italy and Pilsen neighborhoods, in the Illinois Medical District – one of the world’s largest concentrations of advanced public and private health care facilities.

Internal Medicine training entails at least twenty months of meaningful patient care responsibility as defined by the ABIM, including six blocks of supervisory experience, one block of emergency medicine, at least two blocks of critical care, and at least four blocks of subspecialty training.  40% of the training time is in the ambulatory setting.

Pediatrics training includes five months of general and subspecialty inpatient experience, at least two months of neonatology, and one to two months of pediatric critical care.  Four months of supervisory experience is required, of which two must be in the inpatient setting.  Each resident rotates through adolescent medicine, behavioral/developmental pediatrics, ER, newborn nursery, and acute care pediatrics.  In addition, there are a number of electives in which residents choose from a wide range of subspecialty opportunities.  At least 50% of pediatric training time is in the ambulatory setting.
