An internal medicine–pediatrics physician treats adults and children. These doctors complete four years of medical school, then four more years of specialized training: two in internal medicine and two in pediatrics. They can become board-certified both in Internal Medicine and in Pediatrics.
Internal medicine–pediatrics physicians can treat your whole family. They are especially well suited, but not limited, to treating adults with diseases of childhood (such as autism and genetic disorders) as well as children who have “adult” diseases (such as diabetes and obesity).
