    Excuse this soon to be MS1's question on the Rotations & Residencies, but what are the combined residency tracks, like i think you can do Psy-Peds in a combined residency, what are the others and are there any in the works for the future?

    There are a few: med-peds, peds-EM, IM-EM. They're generally a year (or two?) longer than either of the two residencies in the combined track.

    I understand the philosophy of combining two programs, but I don't understand the practicality of combining them. I can't believe that someone doing 4 years of med-peds knows as much adult medicine as someone doing 3 years of IM or knows as much pediatrics as someone doing 3 years of peds.

    Are you interested in doing a combined track so you can sit for two separate boards? Are you intersted in a combined track to expand your fellowship opportunities? Are you interested in a combined track to expand the scope of your practice? They sound like good ideas, but I hear that unless these people are fellowship-bound, they're experience isn't very deep and often times lack some of the respect they deserve.

    this site lists all the residencys possible. Pediatrics/Psychiatry/Child and Adolescent Psychiatry is a combined 5 year program. You can see it on the FREIDA website, however there are only 10 programs that offer this combo.
