    • Why I chose the Combined Program? While searching for my ideal residency in medical school, it was difficult to find the perfect balance between continuity and diversity in the outpatient setting and the intensity and acuity of inpatient medicine. After perusing a great many 3 year family medicine curricula, I stumbled upon the Combined Internal and Family Medicine programs on FRIEDA and happily signed on. We do nursery, pediatric inpatient and some clinic at a children’s hospital, experience obstetrics under the guidance of obstetricians, have our panel of patients overseen by family practitioners, as well as our ward and ICU months with Internal Medicine. These residency years hold the greatest learning potential and I feel that this program truly optimizes the resources in a great academic complex and gives us a unique versatility as practitioners.
