Default It depends on what you want

It depends on what you want.

If you just want to practice medicine anywhere in USA with primary general care then it might not matter where you do your residency.

If you want to pursue prestigious advanced fellowship in a big name University then the location of your residency might matter. For example, if you finish residency in Harvard or in Mayo Clinic then your chances of getting a residency in a big university is higher.
