The number of U.S. Medical Graduates going into Family Practice residencies has been steadily decreasing, from ~2300 in 1996 to ~1200 in 2006. I'm curious as to whether this is based solely on pay or there is more to it. If primary care paid the same as a specialist, would you go into it? What about if it paid more than a specialist wage? For me, it wouldn't be my first choice even if it paid more than a specialist wage, but I'm curious as to what others think. For the purpose of this poll, I consider Family Practice, General Practice, Internal Medicine (non-specialist), Pediatrics, and OB/GYN.
