Default Externship Rotations

Dear Nithish,
It really depends on the specialty. If you are applying to a primary care specialty, like internal medicine, most of your work is going to be on an outpatient basis when you finish residency, and the residency training committees know that. The same goes for family med and pediatrics.

If you are applying for specialties such as neurology or emergency medicine, having hospital exposure can help. However you should be aware that because of cost and liability, the trend in the US is moving away from hospětal care to as much outpatient and home-based care as possible for every patient.

Let us know if you need more information. We would be delighte to help you.

Sincerely,
Lori Ramos Winther
