Welcome to the Section on Internal Medicine & Pediatrics (Med-Peds) Web page! As a Section, we have been busy organizing the Section and advocating for Med-Peds Physicians since 1997. Currently the section has over 2800 members. The Section strives to be the home for physicians trained in and treating adults and children. We have a very strong relationship with the National Med-Peds Residents Association (NMPRA) and the Medicine Pediatrics Program Directors Association to help ensure a strong pipeline and a united voice on activities, research, advocacy and education that is important to med peds physicians.

Please return frequently to check on our progress and our evolving web pages.

It has now been several years for all 3 major med-peds organizations to better inform the entire med-peds community of activities with "one voice": the AAP-Section on Med-Peds (SOMP), National Med-Peds Residents' Association (NMPRA) and the Med-Peds Program Directors' Association (MPPDA).

Our AAP Section on Med-Peds has interest groups that include the med-peds practice group and the residents /students/young physicians group. We will now have a 6 member hospitalist subgroup that will allow us to liaison with the Society of Hospitalist Medicine (over 200 med-peds members) and our section. Up to 1/3 of our graduates now pursue hospitalist careers. We will move toward a hospitalist position on our executive committee (our executive committee has dedicated positions for a program director, community physician, resident) after a bylaws change that the membership will need to approve.

Please drop us an email if you would like to join or propose an activity for the group.

We can celebrate how much closer our med-peds organizations have become (professionally and socially) and what our combined efforts have produced. Our executive committees meet each October to compare notes, combine agendas and action items wherever possible.

Your med-peds organization leaders are very interested in working together with you to develop a repository of real-world med-peds success examples that can be used with legislators, students, deans, hospital administrators. It will also be used as a PR campaign to the public to show what med-peds physicians do in practice. Share with us your med-peds success stories!

Together we will:

  • Influence health policy
  • Work to make maintenance of certification as easy as possible
  • Publish data from a workforce survey completed by med-peds physicians
  • Help directors and residents navigate the New Accreditation System and Milestones
  • Update materials for osteopathic medical students and allopathic students (that do not have med-peds programs locally) to better understand med-peds
  • Build a repository of med-peds graduates' research bibliography
