Likely to be expensive charity work with limited returns.
It's primarily clinical / surgical oncology fellowship. Research is optional.

What are the benefits of being double accredited in IM + subspecialty? Why is it an extra 2 years required to be certified in IM on top of basic IM training

IM is basically just a GP in the hospital.
See everything. Refer everywhere. Coordinate care. Lowest pay.

Dude there is zero benefit
Most subspec in hosp must also run IM wards, like at least cover one week per month

It is a chore
Most endo , renal , respiratory need to cover IM
I donít want to cover but they force me
