    Part of this is true. when my sister finished her residency, she was able to get into a group in which she got a pretty good salary in addition to having portion of her students loans paid off by the group. I think this is a relatively common advertising tool that groups of physicians use in order to get brand new physicians to come work with them.

    However, there is a catch.....these places are most likely in the middle of nowhere....I.E. very rural cities. Case in point, my sister was working in Hereford, Texas (http://maps.google.com/maps?oi=map&q=Hereford,+TX). Don't get me wrong though...she got an awesome deal and all, but then again, if you are a big city person it may not be for you.
