SDN Members don't see this ad. (About Ads) hey guys, so i was all pretty much set about applying to urology since i do feel that it's a great field that offers a lot of variety, etc. however, recently in my urology rotation, i've met a couple of attendings that have been certainly less than enthusiastic about the future of urology, especially in terms of reimbursement rates and all, and have pretty much told me to consider going into another field. they said that medicare rates get cut every year and that urology is one of the main field that is affected by such cuts since urologists have a lot of medicare pts. they say that a lot of urologists have been forced to come out of private practice because they can't afford the overhead anymore, etc....so now, i'm stuck, i don't know what to do...i like urology but nonetheless do feel that it's important to think about the future of the field as I make my decision now. would appreciate any of your thoughts...thank.
