Abstract:

Background Over 55 of trainees change career plans at least once during residency, but the factors that drive these decisions are undefined. Since 2008 at our institution, internal medicine IM residents have been required to do a four-week inpatient ID rotation as an intern. Timing of this rotation was randomly assigned. We evaluated the effect of IM interns experiences on their ID rotation on future application for ID fellowship.
