I am wondering if it is possible to break up an internship year from the rest of the residency years. For instance, if I wasn't completely sure that I would like to live in a particular city for 4 years if I could plan on spending my internship year and complete the remainder of my residency somewhere else. Is this highly unusual or impossible. My concern is that this is a major commitment of time and you never really know what a place is like until you have lived there. Interviewing does not necessarily give you an honest feel for the location. Any input is greatly appreciated.
