Training exceptional physicians for adults and children with a wide range of healthcare needs
The Internal Medicine and Pediatrics (Med-Peds) Residency Program at Vanderbilt University Medical Center prepares residents to be exceptional generalists for independent practice in the care of both children and adults with a wide range of healthcare needs.
Our program provides a wide breadth of clinical and academic experiences. From this generalist training, residents may choose to practice as a generalist or seek additional specialty training.

Vanderbilt University Medical Center has a plethora of opportunities for personalizing residency to set the foundation of an exceptional career.
Our Med-Peds program provides a structured educational pathway for outstanding comprehensive generalist training and mentorship for individualizing your training pathway. We encourage leadership, academic excellence, and kindness.
Strong faculty mentorship and support
