The response was anything but subtle when Kate Goheen mentioned during her medical school training that she wanted to become a family doctor. "You're making the biggest mistake of your life," several physicians and professors told her, encouraging her to seek a much higher-paying -- and, some said, more prestigious -- specialty.
