I am finishing my second year at SGU and recently decided that I want to go into Family Practice. I am married and we are looking at starting a family in the next few years and I really want a job where I can see my kids grow up. I know it may not be as "illustrious" as some other fields such as Cardiothoracic Surgery, etc., but it also has a lot of patient contact which I want. What is the advantage of doing IM vs. Family Medicine if you want to work in a fairly large practice (5 or more MD's) and you want to see patients from preteen years up to the elderly? Thanks for the help.
