IM primary care = more focus on outpatient setting (but can have equally strong inpatient exposure as well)
IM categorical = traditional IM. More inpatient rotations.
It is generally considered relatively harder to get fellowships after primary care residency, especially more so for imgs (though that depends on the program). im primary care is ideal for those interested to be primary care physicians in the future.
