Medicine-Pediatrics Residency

Baystate is a Leader in the National Med-Peds Community

  • All past program directors, and our current program director, have served as President of the National Med-Peds Program Director's Association (MPPDA).
  • Our residency program is recognized as one of the top med-peds programs in the country.
  • We have a reputation for training not only exceptional med-peds physicians but balanced and compassionate individuals.

A Balance of Training in Both Disciplines

Our medicine-pediatrics residency incorporates the academic and clinical resources of two excellent categorical programs to offer an exceptional four-year educational experience in an institution committed to med-peds training. The program is administered by a full-time med-peds trained program director, part time associate program director and part time assistant program director. As a Baystate resident you will play a vital role in health care delivery under the guidance of combined medicine-pediatric, internal medicine, and pediatric faculty who are committed to medical education.


Train in One of the Oldest, Most Sophisticated Med-Peds Practices in the Country

One of the greatest assets to training in Baystate's Medicine-Pediatrics Residency Program is the combined med-peds continuity clinic at the Mason Square Neighborhood Health Center. The clinic is precepted by ten med-peds trained faculty as well as several categorical faculty.


We take pride in the education we offer to our residents, and we invite you to discover if Baystate would be the best fit with your career goals.
