That is a broad question.
Not sure what to tell you.
There is a need for more primary care docs in the US. So, job opportunities are definitely there.
Depending on what kind of practice you join or whether you open your own practice and do more woman medicine, you may be more busy than others and make more money.
things are very variable in the real world. It is all based on performance and success. The more patients come to your practice the more recognition you get.
Obviously, specialization is limited to just few. sport medicine, woman medicine, geriatrics.
If you are interested in primary care, then you have definitely done the right choice.
good luck to you.
