HI bbb/ anyone

could u plz tell me whats the IM Categorical and Primary care stands for?

I am confused, so does in Family medicine.

and what is For Physicians only?



Well, Primary Medicine means that you don't want a fellowship following medicine.

Categorical is 3 years of IM

FP - is family practice or family medicine


Thanks for your response bbb.

Does Primary care IM/FM have to serve in rural areas? just curious.


Primary care is just that - you are the primary doctor and refer out everything that you need to. Where you practice doesn't matter. City, suburb, country - that doesn't mean a thing.


thanks bbb
