Internal Medicine / Psychiatry Policies

Internal Medicine / Psychiatry Policy Overview

The American Board of Internal Medicine and the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology offer dual certification in internal medicine and psychiatry. A combined residency must include at least five years of coherent education integral to residencies in the two disciplines. Participating residencies must be in the same institution.

To meet eligibility requirements for dual certification, the resident must satisfactorily complete 60 months of combined education, which must be verified by the directors of both programs. The written certifying examinations cannot be taken until all required years in both specialties are satisfactorily completed.
