As someone interested in IM, how many electives should one do in CTU vs subspecialty pre-carms? I was thinking of doing most of my electives in CTU and maybe 2 electives in a subspecialty, just so there is some variety. What is everyone's opinion? Is that too much? Having completed my core IM rotation, I've realized that it can be hard to get good interaction with the attending on CTU, as often times it's the senior and junior residents running the wards. As opposed to a subspecialty rotation where you get more 1 on 1 engagement with your preceptor. Any tips on getting LOR on CTU? A
I'm an R1 in IM, currently trying to decide whether I want to pursue subspecialty training in Critical Care or GiM. I love the idea of CC, but I know the job market is bleak. I'd be more comfortable pursuing it if I knew I could work as a general internist/hospitalist as backup. Does anyone know of any intensivists doing this? If so, what is the size of the center? Much appreciated!
Hi i'm thinking about IM and i'm wondering what the actual practice of it is like in urban centres and community settings. Focusing on GIM, btw. Is there acute care (in the sense that a patient will come in with life-threatening symptoms and you can save their life?) And what sort of population variety do you see? Is practice truly almost all 70+?
