    This question is for those who are interested in going into family practice: why does this field interest you?

    Low cost of malpractice insurance, ability to practice privately, least number of years to complete the residency.

    I'm not sure if I want to be a GP, but I'm definetly thinking about it. I like the fact that you see a variety of things and are able to directly influence people's lives(counseling, prevention, things like that):love:
