Primary Care or Specialization?

Many of you in, and out, of training have told me about the challenges of choosing primary care in today’s economic and legislative environment.  Drexel second-year Jonathan Wong shared this Time article that summarizes some of the obstacles.

I’m thinking about pulling together a forum for the spring that helps students decide between primary care and specialization.  There are the obvious factors such as differences in compensation, but as Christians we need to think more deeply and process this issue in light of God’s call on our lives.  Although the answers are rarely obvious, through dialogue and prayer we can make a good beginning.

Let me know what you think would make for a successful forum in the comments section below.
