Bell Curve


Pushed that tongue depressor in a little far there, didn't you, Doc? Lawsuit's in the mail!


You are a General Practitioner at a small family practice in Duluth. When not seeing patients, you are working on a cure for the Minnesotan accent.


You practice at a mid-sized medical center in Arlington. You make good money and have great job security. Which is an excellent thing, because you are really not that good.


You're the sole GP at your own private practice—you've been doing this for years and have a solid reputation. Your office is in the heart of New York City, so you will never not be busy.
