i have the same question. I mean, I would be happy as long as I match, but I'm wondering if this would affect the way we should interview. I am wondering if applying to primary care IM means youre more interested in primary care rather then fellowships? I'm not sure though.. if anyone can shed a light on this, it would be great.
