    SO, it looks like call in FP will be about the same as other general specialties, like IM or Peds right?

    Then my question is, how is call after you begin a practice. What is the difference between rural vs city, solo vs group practice. Will you always have to take call no matter where you practice?

    Also, another ?---What are the typical hours for a FM physician, is part time an option? The FP physicians that I worked with seem to work their butts off in a solo practice, working at least 12 hours a day and on call every 4th night and every 4th weekend..is this typical.

    Please, any help would be appreciated..I am trying to decide between EM and other specialties such as Peds and FP.
