I'm a Canadian medical student and I'm deciding whether moving down to the states to practice medicine would be right for me. I know this sounds superficial, but one of the big reasons for moving is having better weather year round, in a place like California or Florida.

I know there are big differences in the healthcare systems between Canada and US, but I am wondering whether there is anyone who has trained or worked in both systems and would like to share their own personal stories and experiences. What are some aspects most people don't recognize? How bad is working with the insurance companies down in the States? I would love to hear your thoughts.

I mean that is just way too broad a question and highly dependent on speicality, the speicfic practice within speicailtiy, specific states/provinces/cities, etc.
