* How many and types of IM programs should I apply
 #859754

  Hello everyone,

I would like to ask about how many and what type of Internal Medicine residency programs ( community only or should I try for university as well) should apply for?

My year of graduation: 2012
Step 1 score: 209
Step 2 score: 211 ( 2nd attempt)
Step 2 CS : passed first attempt.

And I am doing an MBA degree and have more than one year of clinical experience in USA. Also, I have finished one year postdoctoral research fellowship in Nanomedicine

Should I apply university programs and university affiliated or should I apply for community as well. My legal status is citizenship.

Best,

Thanks

  I think its best for you to apply to only community programs. Except you have connections at university or affiliated programs.

  Your scores are going to limit you. You should apply the university programs in the same cities where you did clinical experience/research, and you should apply to community programs.

  As you have less score it will be better to have Step 3 completed before applying to match. Also, apply for more than 150 programs to make the chances of getting IVs better and apply for both community and univerisity programs.
