I wanted an unopposed family medicine program. I wanted to be able to work directly with physicians and not have to compete with residents from other residency programs (OB/GYN, internal medicine, surgery, etc) for opportunities. When I was applying to residency programs, I was told the analogy that it is better to be on a division II school (Siouxland) and on the field playing than on a division I (university associated residencies) and on the bench. From what I've seen from family medicine residents at university associated programs, that is the case. Often they are on the bench. I'd rather be in the game!
