You won't do any of these fields in communities of 20,000 folks, unless they are reasonably close to a bigger city you can commute to, but it isn't just a handful of cities that have pedi fellowship trained specialists.
thanks for the info, oldbearprofessor. do you (or anyone else for that matter) think it would be unwise to do pediatrics if i have no intention of not specializing? meaning, if i didn't get a fellowship i'd probably be unhappy doing inpatient/outpatient peds. thanks guys, i'm just trying to figure this stuff out.
