  1. Hi all,

    As a clerk wanting to go into family medicine, I am now having some doubts. I've spoken to several family doctors who complain that they don't get compensated enough/compensated fairly and have read reports online on family doctors having to do much more paperwork at home when compared to other specialities. Some benefits of family medicine I see are the ability to take longer to see your patients (as opposed to certain specialities), the programs being a 2 year residency as opposed to 5, and having a great work-life balance. As much as I like these pros of family medicine, I don't know if I would ultimately regret choosing the speciality. Although making as much money as possible isn't my goal, I don't know if I would want to go into a career that so many people are apparently unsatisfied. 

    Just wondering if any family medicine applicants/residents had some insight into family medicine as a career.
