You Will Have Greater Career Flexibility

After completing a combined residency program, graduates may further diversify their experiences through fellowship training. Double-boarded doctors can subspecialize in one (or both!) of their primary fields. For instance, a graduate of a combined internal medicine-pediatrics program could elect to subspe-cialize in adult nephrology or pediatric endocrinology while also practicing general medicine and pediatrics. Some physicians add even more variety to their careers by pursuing accelerated dual fellowship training, such as adult and pediatric cardiology, after completing a combined residency. As long as a program supports the idea of fellowship training in both disciplines, the possibilities are limitless.
