For many (not all, of course)IM Fellowships, the bigger the name the more
research they require. In some top programs, all fellows are required to do
research during the fellopship draining.
In addition, there are some programs that offer combined clinical-research
training. You get enough clinical trainin to be board-certified to practice
as a heme/oncologist, nephrologist, GI, Card, ID , etc without any
restriction. As a package deal, during your fellowship, you have to do 1-2
years research depending on different apecialety. Almost all programs
offering these options are from top schools. They got funding from NIH or
other agency for these spots. they need people to use it and do some
From my samll sample, many CMG went into this pathway. Many of them got into
top 10 programs in this country, even in the most competitive fields. Most
of them went on to pure clinical practice after their training.
Since the fellowship application is getting more and more competitive, (some
people say "extremely"), probably more CMGs are going to pursue this route.
As you know, many AMGs are trying to spend time doing research to improve
their application to the hot specialties, such as GI, Cards etc. In most of
the cases, their research is not even close to that of an average CMG.
Once in the residency, one may keep an eye on this option. You may want to
get into a fellowship with 100% clinical commitment. However, it will never
hurt to keep this option open. In fact, if one chose this route in a hot
specialty in a top shcool, it is a very good deal.
