I am still considering IM but I don't think the outpatient training is good enough to offer the most value for the $. Things like joint injections and managing derm problems suddenly become very important when patients have high deductible plans and want as much care in that monthly fee as possible without getting hit with a 200$+ bill for a referral. I think it'll make primary care more complex and less dumbed down than it is today since referrals will never be done just out of convenience.

Some of the 'primary care track' IM programs offer much more outpatient training than their conventional counterparts. You have a great plan, agreed.
