Depends on lots of factors really but importantly the program. I think many would agree that it might be preferable to pursue a residency in a top tier university primary care compared to low tier categorical community program. If you were an AMG, the chances for fellowship after primary care are significantly better. Also the tougher one's (cardio, gastro) are much harder to get after primary care IM.
