The UCLA Med-Peds Residents rotate through the Department of Internal Medicine & Pediatrics in 3 month blocks. The exception is the 1st month of the internship year, when the Med-Peds Residents start in either Internal Medicine or Pediatrics and then switch the following month. By utilizing this method, our residents have exposure to both Internal Medicine & Pediatrics by their 2nd month of residency, which eases the transitions during the year. Vacation is scheduled 4 weeks per year, split into 2 week blocks.
