If it's okay to comment by IMGs, I'll say honestly that it's making me a little worried. What really bugs me is the way many IMGs use FP as a springboard to other specialties. Maybe there are just too many FP spots right now.Originally posted by tofurious
How do the USMGs who matched into Family Med residencies feel about the high number of un-filled spots and the perhaps increase in underqualified applicants scrambling into those spots?
I don't think specialists will be paid more, unless the supply of specialists exceeds the need for specialty referral. Specialists (as I will be one) are sort of in the business of creating more ways to do things better or to deal with diseases we have considered "incurable" in the past. Often this involves new technology, new drugs, and new techniques, all of which cost $. This $ will be passed onto the patients if they demand such new therapies.Originally posted by Pepe
I don't think we will get a whole lot more money, but I do think specialist will get less money in the future.
