On the interview trail, I have found that some of the big hardcore county programs are amazing. I feel like they would be an unbelievable place to train, and that the grads are total rockstars. My one question, though, is the feasibility of a career in academics after training at a county program. Has anyone out there trained at a county facility and gone into academics? It seems like training in a county hospital would give you great experience to take to an academic program, but I am wondering if it is frowned upon. Any input is appreciated.
