Well it deppends supostly a friend of my told that if you study general medicine you earn almost the same money that you can earn for studying a specialty, we must remember that we work because we need the money that's it.
Good luck.

The nursing home business has been using attending physicians for a very long time over 30 years to my knowledge.
