  1. Hi Everyone, I'm wondering if anyone can provide insight to the flexibility of lifestyle for attending physicians? For eg, the attending general surgeon at a hospital, or an attending cardiologist, are they able to take vacation/time off based on their own preferences?

  5. Hi Everyone, Current MS3 here thinking about pursuing FM. I'm leaning towards family medicine, but I realized that I like family medicine more for the things that I could do with the training outside the core responsibility of a GP. For example, I don't particularly like managing the elderly with chronic conditions but I'm more interested in potentially working as an emerg doc, working with peds/doing deliveries, and possibly some procedures/cosmetics on the side. I'm wondering if anyone could provide some insight regarding this issue - does it sound ludicrous to go into a program in
