Internal medicine ( rheumatology) vs family med....

Recommended Posts

Interested in doing an internal medicine residency but would like to know how many hours does average resident/ week? What is work life balance in an internal medicine residency?  Do u need a fellowship after rheumatology residency?

The rheums I know have pretty fantastic work life balance, but that’s quite the difference compared to the relatively hectic IM residency. 
 

I’m PGY-2 FM and have found my residency lifestyle pretty fantastic. My IM friends are much busier than I am. But a lot of it is very program dependent.

How busy you are is also a good or bad thing depending on your post-residency goals. Often times, busier = more training.
