I'm starting to look for jobs. The problem is that I'm not sure what I want in a job. I have a couple of requirements:
1) must have OB
2) must not have ER
3) opportunity to do palliative care, preferably inpatient

I would also like:
1) in house peds and OB support
2) other family docs doing OB to share call

is that reasonable?

Many of the family doctors at Stonechurch have the exact practice you describe. They have a big OB call pool, have good OB/Peds support given that they deliver at St. Joe's, and some also do palliative. I don't know if they need any more doctors there, but something to look into!

Choosing a first practice is really tough! You have to be careful people don't take advantage of you. My only suggestion is that your first practice not be something you put a huge amount of your own money into upfront (i.e. don't open a new solo practice) people often change what they want to do as their career moves forward.
I personally started out as an inner city doc, then became a northern doc and now do exclusively emergency medicine. I think I'll stay in EM, but it took me a couple of trys to figure it all out, and that's okay...
