SDN Members don't see this ad. (About Ads) Hi I am currently a second year Internal Medicine resident at a community program in Nor Cal. I think IM is ok. I don't think I can do IM by it self and want to specialize. The thing is that I do like pulmonary but I do not want to do critical care. There are a few programs in the country that offer pulmonary without critical care. I am wondering what the job market is like for Pulmonary ( I would like to settle down in SoCal - where I grew up)? My Pulm/CC attendings tell me that doing Pulm by itself is not a good idea because I will have a really tough time finding a job. Basically they say that most people higher newly Pulm/CC graduates to work 70% CC and 30% Pulm, and the more senior you become the more Pulm and less CC you do. Is this true? I find it hard to believe that it is hard to find work and be a Pulm only doc. any thoughts? suggestions?
