I am a 39 yo mother and physician. I stopped working approximately 7 years ago to raise my young children. My youngest is now school age and I would like to work part time as a primary care physician. (I trained as an internist and did one year of family medicine before that). Do you think I should and could do this program? It sounds very intriguing to me. I live in San Francisco.
