Just received an offer from a GI practice, and I am a new grad, which is nice, as the market is so tight. Wished I could find a strict family practice type position, but there just don't seem to be any openings that don't ask for 1-2 years of experience.
Doc is great, practice is really close to my house, and the hours are great. Job seems easy ...mainly doing H&P's, and seeing pts at the hospital after their surgeries, etc.
Pay is on the low side, but hubby makes a decent salary, so I'm not clamoring for a huge salary to start ...
My question is, can I at least eventually move into more family practice type roles as time goes on? Or will I get pidgeon holed? Don't really want to do GI for the rest of my life, but I don't mind starting out and learning ... part of me always did want to do a speciality, for the narrower focus and perhaps a bit less stress ...I don't know what to think.
Wish our market wasn't so tight ...it's just saturated where I live.
