you can make 200 if you work hard and like the above post...do procedures. you could moonlight on weekends in urgent care if you desired too. fp is wide open...you can do so much or so little...the beauty of the specialty!
In my practice, if you see 25 plus patients per day, you can average over $160K if you work 4 days per week and well over $200K if you work 5 days per week. We do vasectomies, simple derm procedures. That's about it.
I would look around your medical neighborhood and find a doc (urology or FP) that does vasectomies and schedule some time with them. I only did about a dozen during my training but was fortunate to have a colleague at my first post-residency job that helped me along with the first few.
But definitely look around, you'll find someone that will teach you.
If you are so concerned about money, why not go into a field that lets you make more with less effort? I mean you will put in long hours in most fields, why not do something that gives you the most on your investment?
yes xcept OB. Ob requires an additional sub-policy. it varies from location to location. most people say if you deliver atleast 4 babies a month its worth it...as far as paying for your additional malpract and actually seeing some revenue from delivering. but, most places if your doing OB as an FP they will paying for your malpract anyhow.
