I love the versatility of Med-Peds. As a hospitalist, I get to treat such a variety of interesting cases. I love playing and even dancing with young kids, and having meaningful conversations with my older adult patients. Being Med-Peds has allowed me to teach in the medical school in different roles, both on the IM and Peds side, which has been fun. I also love the flexibility of being a Med-Peds hospitalist, that in my “free” time I can be involved in the local activism or volunteer at my kids school.
