Hi. I am a 4th yr and am interested in going into primary care Internal Med. I live in Boston and am applying only to programs in this area. There are alot of great programs in the area...both "academic" and more community-based. I was wondering two things: 1. How different really are the P Care IM residency programs as compared to just plain categorical medicine (in general). 2. What are benefits/disadvantages of community vs academic residency programs. Thanks for any info you can provide!!!!!!!!!!!
