I've been told to look into community based residencies and fellowships, but it doesn't really sound like something that's very unique to me.. I also read about what they are, and it sounds like a bunch of what I'm already doing, just at half the salary that I'm at currently.

Can someone that did a community based residency tell me what they did during their year? Was it worth it? What are you doing now? Would you do it again? What are your options once finishing? Did you go onto a PGY-2 (and if so, in what)?

I'm going back and forth between trying for a possible residency, or looking more into managed care residencies that are available. I'm currently in retail for a large chain and I need something more fulfilling in my life. Haha.

I searched for some threads that were similar but I wasn't able to find many... Sorry if there are more out there.

Skip the retail residency and do the managed care one.
