I get the sense from reading some threads that since PMR is a very small field, a PMR physician may not be able to find a job in an area he/she wants to live. For an example, I'll be starting MS 1 at Rosalind Franklin this fall but would like to do residency in Socal and work in Socal. As say an internist, hospitalist, EM, radiology physician (and many others), is the chance of working in say Socal greater than a PMR physician in your opinion? Another concern of mine is the field on PMR in general. Although I'm very interested in the field, I get the sense that it's a field that needs to try to find a place in the medical field. At this one hospital, a neurologist called himself a "rehab doctor". It seems that other fields have much clearer scope of practice or is better known by other physicians/medical staff and get used in place of a PMR physician. Is the field as stable in its existence as other more established ones? And finally, are there any significant 'quality' difference among the socal and Stanford programs? Thanks!
