SDN Members don't see this ad. (About Ads) You see my dilemma?! By the way, hi guys, it's been a long time since I've been around SDN. I've been enjoying the hell out of third year! And now that it's getting close to decision time, I'm still confused about what I want to do. Here's what I know so far: I want surgery in some form. But unfortunately my third year schedule has surgey LAST, so I still feel like I'm in the dark when it comes to specifics about surgical fields. What I'm really questioning, is what will I see most often in the feilds I listed. Here are my thoughts, please post yours: General Surgery: Lots of lap chole's, some breast stuff, some GI (?), and lots of hernia repairs ENT: I really like the people in this field, plus I know they tend to have continuity with many of their pt's, which I guess is a plus. But what procedures are their "bread and butter?" Is it all nasal polyps, and trachs? need more info! Trauma: This seems like a great field minus the lifestyle crap. But I have decided I'm flexible if I get to do what I love on a daily basis. Plus, I'm one of those people who planned on going into EM until I learned that it's mostly family practice without an appointment, and with irrate pts. So Trauma seems like a good thing... Ob/Gyn: I loved every bit of this field, except the office work. OB checks all day with paps and colpos mixed in. I've heard some estimates that say they spend 80% of their time in the office. I don't know if that would be enough OR time for me? So that's where I stand. I guess my biggest fear is that I will do my surgery rotation and hate some part of it! Becuase, right now, that's what I really see myself doing. Any input from those of you who've been through this, would be greatly appreciated!
