So I've been hearing that rural FP's can be trained to do uncomplicated OB and some general surgery. No doubt that this is true, but what specifically is a small town FP's scope of surgical practice? Is it limited to appy's and C-sections?

Should post this to the Family Practice forum for a better answer.
