No.

It's not hard to write your own though. The naive algorithm sorts the array and picks the middle (or the average of the two middle) elements. However, this algorithm is `O(n log n)`

while its possible to solve this problem in `O(n)`

time. You want to look at selection algorithms to get such an algorithm.
