Are you considering applying to pharmacy school but are concerned about job prospects when you graduate? Join us on Wednesday, July 28th at 8 PM Eastern to hear from three PharmDs about their experiences and options outside of retail pharmacy.
How do you use your PM residency/fellowship today? Where did you go? What did your co-fellows/residents end up doing after completion of the program?There are combined programs, like IM-PM residency programs, and there are categorical programs that one can get into after finishing a preliminary year. Some complete a full residency in a primary care specialty before doing a PM residency. I did a FM residency and then did a 2 year PM residency. If you plan to just work in PM/Public health, then a PM residency will prepare you well for the job. But if you plan to see patients as a primary care physician, I strongly recommend doing either a combined IM-PM or FM-PM program, or complete a IM or FM residency before doing a PM residency. While there is some clinical training in a PM residency, it is definitely not as in depth as a dedicated IM or FM residency.
