    I have heard about a combined residency that takes five years in psych and IM. I am curious if people know how common these residencies are, why one would do one and what people practice when they are done with the residency. Is it a competitive residency? If anyone has any insight whatsoever on the subject, please share. I appreciate your time.

    27 IM/Psych residencies. It gives you the option of practicing both IM and psych or either alone. You will be double board certified.

    If I had to guess based upon the strengths of each department I would say the top 3 of these are:

    1) Duke
    2) U Virginia
    3) University of Rochester

    Search FRIEDA online at <a href="http://www.ama-assn.org" target="_blank">www.ama-assn.org</a> look under medical education then FRIEDA.

    Thanks a bunch voxel. That seems to show that it isn't that widespread of an option. I wonder how established these programs are and if any of the training gets slighted because of trying to do two things at once. If anyone has any more insight on the quality of this type of residency or any other opinions I would love to hear them.
