The MetroHealth System is a multi-location public academic healthcare organization dedicated to delivering high-quality care to all citizens of Cuyahoga County regardlfess of their ability to pay. This mission drives everything we do and pulls together the faculty, residents, and staff to make a unique training and health care environment.
As the safety net hospital for the county, MetroHealth serves a large and diverse population, including underserved patients with no insurance or with state-sponsored insurance but limited resources. In addition, many patients with private insurance choose MetroHealth because of the high quality of health care provided. Residents provide outstanding care to persons from all backgrounds, economic classes, educational circumstances, and cultural experiences. This prepares MetroHealth graduates to care for patients from every possible socio-economic situation.
The institution is one of four primary hospital affiliates of Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine. All of MetroHealth's active physician staff are faculty at Case Western Reserve University. Learn more about MetroHealth.
|About the Med-Peds Residency
The Med-Peds residency program at MetroHealth is a fully accredited four-year program. Our curriculum meets or exceeds all the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) and Residency Review Committee (RRC) requirements for a Med-Peds program. However, this is not unique to our program. What makes us unique is our mission, resident autonomy, and diverse patient population.
Residents are the primary members of the healthcare team. Med-Peds residents fully integrate into the categorical Medicine and Pediatrics teams. Throughout the training experience, our residents enjoy a great deal of autonomy.
In our continuity clinic, patients are assigned directly to residents — a relationship that allows our residents to build their clinic panels and be highly involved in the medical decision-making process.
Inpatients are always admitted to generalist, resident-run teaching services. All services are run by residents with faculty oversight, and this autonomy prepares our trainees well for the real world.
The MetroHealth mission necessitates unique skills for our residents. Our curriculum trains residents to be critical thinkers who provide empathetic and effective care for patients. Residents lead the team of students, other residents, and health care providers, learning to be team players while developing leadership skills.
|Med-Peds Faculty & Clinics
There are 18 Med-Peds faculty and four Med-Peds Primary care clinic sites. Our Med-Peds faculty also provide focused care for patients in one of three specialty clinics including weight management clinic, neurodevelopment and transiting clinic, and the Pride Clinic (a clinic specializing in lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender patients and their families). Med-Peds residents have a weekly Med-Peds-only clinic starting in their second year that takes advantage of these unique training environments. Learn more about MetroHealth's locations and facilities.
