Search How to spot community versus univeristy programs in FREIDA!

I have a doubt,

When I do my search on FREIDA how I spot the university based programs vs the community ones.

Thanks in advance.

I'm interested in Pediatrics

University programs says University Hospital or University Medical Center.
Community hospitals do not have the word University in their name.

To find out if the program is University-affiliated then you need to look up their website, they usually mention it.

University programs are coded 1. 2 and 5 are Community hospitals. 5 are those Community with University affiliations. The code is in the last column on the Freida result page.
