Where do you see yourself working as a family physician? What is your dream family medicine career/practice?

Some high-yield rotations/electives for family medicine would be: emergency medicine, outpatient psychiatry rotation (in-patient is not that helpful), palliative care rotation (but choose a 2 week elective, because 4-week is too long), sports medicine clinic.

I would echo outpatient or ER psych, as above. The others that I found to be super helpful, related and interesting were 1) Peds EM (def more relevant and better hours than Peds CTU, with a really high volume of common presentations), 2) Addictions Med and 3) Palliative. A rural FM rotation is always solid too, especially if you get to do a mix of clinic/inpatient/ER/labor and delivery. I've heard that things like ENT, derm and optho can be quite useful but I found these hard to get.
