Are you basically going to end up practising medicine in small town, usa?


In general, are the jobs in the big cities so competitive to get that you have to really do well in med school and get a good residency/fellowship?

Thanks for your responses.

Hmm.....could be....but I think politics plays more important roles than grades, boards, clinicals. Who do you know? How well do you know them? Is this person a family member? Etc.
Boards are also more important than your grades as well. Its the only way to compare you to the students across the country....not just your school. If your preclinical grades suck....rock the boards, rock your clinicals, youll end up at a good residency.
