Is it true that this year they are going to add 550 new Family Medicine positions!

"
The legislation also increases funding for the National Health Service Corps and the nation's community health centers. In addition, the measure reauthorizes Section 747 of Title VII of the Public Health Service Act, the only federal program that provides funds to academic departments of family medicine and family medicine residency programs to increase training of family physicians."

Info Difficulty of Family Medicine Programs!!

What's the deal on Family Medicine? I thought it should be less competitive and with less requirements than other residencies..

On the contrary, most of the programs "NEED" USCE, and a very big number doesn't support visas!!
