SDN Members don't see this ad. (About Ads) Hey all, I have a bit of a dilemma that I was hoping to get some insight/advice on: I am currently an OB/GYN intern at a solid program and thinking of switching to Radiology or Psychiatry. I had a tough time deciding between these fields in the first place and would really like to do IR (diagnostic is fun as well but I think my goal is IR). I truly do love my field but the OB part I can do without. I realized I am someone that is more planned and the excitement of L&D wore off pretty fast. I like diagnosis more than management and prefer using fine technique. I do like the surgical aspect of my field but definitely prefer the finer surgeries in gyn than the rushed OB stuff. Urogyn? Yes, thought about it but don't think I'd be happy doing another 3 years of OB . . . . Why do I like psychiatry? I think it's very rewarding personally. I love that you have extended time with patients and can make such a dramatic impact on someone's quality of life. I love reading psych literature and think I could definitely see myself happy in this field. The only CON I see with psych is - no procedures! That all being said, ultimately I'm struggling with how to work all this out. Do I approach my PD first? How do I go about finding outside of the match spots? Should I just call every program I can think of? Should I just apply via ERAS next year? Should I continue my current residency(PGY2) until I find an open position even though I'm miserable? Would radiology accept my ob/gyn intern year as a prelim? My stats aren't too impressive (step 1: 219, step 2: 211) so that's a factor as well (but I have alot of research, publications, solid grades from a good MS). My fiance is also a resident in my current city so that's a consideration as well. We would like to stay together if we could . . . . but ultimately we are okay with being on the same coast(east). Ideas? Extrapolations? Random commentary? I'm all ears.
