Smile Family Medicine Electives



Hi friends

I’m doing my internship now. Preparing for USMLE…

I got an opportunity through my college to go for family medicine electives in Kentucky university..I have no info regarding FM… I'm interested in internal medicine… Will it be wise enough to do electives in Family medicine?

I want info regarding family medicine electives…& Will I be able to get into IM if I get into FM electives? I'm planning to give step 2 CS if I go there… & I want to get some clinical experience in USA…I would be thankful if someone could guide me.

thank u

Thumbs Up Definitely OK

Definitely doing an elective in family medicine in a university will greatly enhance your CV for your later application for residencies even if it was internal medicine.

These two specialties are like sisters and the IM residency program directors wouldn't mind at all that you did Family Medicine in a university.

Bottom line, go for it and get to know the US health care system and start building connections
