UT Memphis Medicine/Pediatrics Curriculum
Our combined four year training program leads to board eligibility in both Medicine and Pediatrics. We are excited about the new ACGME recognition of Med-peds as a residency option all its own, and we feel our program easily facilitates this philosophy. The curriculum at UT is ideal for acquiring the skills necessary to provide total family-oriented, lifelong care. The majority of our residents enter practices that include both adult and pediatric medicine.
