    would you like to serve the rural or urban population when you practice in the future? Why? What are the advantages and disadvantages of each?

    I have decided against rural because of the workload. I talked with several doctors who have practiced medicine in rural areas. They ended up working 365 days a year 24/7. Since the groups are usually too small for coverage, docs couldn't really take time off.

    Well, pretty much rural. I want to be near my family in Fresno. I'll even consider getting a faculty position at UC Merced and just being affliated with UCSF here. I think it's really extremely important for kids to have their extended family around them.
