IM thread for this match - omalizumab890
@ Omalizumab,

what have you added to your application this year?
Best field out there. You'll get it. With IM you can specialize.
You can specialize into geriatrics, palliative care, endocrinology, rheumatology.. All of which pay less than general IM hospitalist work (+years of lost income while in fellowship) Smile ...but money isn't everything in this life. Cardiology/gastroenterology/oncology are very competitive subspecialties and they are not realistic goals for an FMG who matches into a community program with no in-house fellowship.

Just my thoughts.. you should want to do general IM if you apply IM, not apply to IM because you can avoid doing general IM, lol.
