    While thinking about the Practice Vision essay on this year's AMCAS application, I was curious about something.

    I have always just assumed that it would be possible to split time between a hospital (which is usually in an urban environment) and a small rural clinic.

    But is that a common arrangment? I would like to experience both worlds instead of choosing one over the other but how realistic is this?

    You're right, that arrangement is not too common, but I do know a general surgeon that is in a group practice (rural) that does surgeries M,W,Th and comes to his part-time "academic" appointment on T and F.

    It is a 2 hour drive each way for him, but he seems to enjoy teaching residents.

    Oh, absolutely it is possible. You just have to drive a lot.
