IOW: What discipline has the worst street reputation, among candidate-MDs to pursue, as it may offer some of the lowest ratios for: 1) dollars-earned / hours-worked 2) satisfaction-achieved / hours-worked 3) amount-of-intelligent-work-needed / amount-of-drudgery-work-routinely-required 4) expected growth-in-income/experience-years 5) deep-healthcare-issues-corrected_or_resolved / merely_helped_with_the_cosmetic_issues 6) good_patient_interactions / number_of_patients_cared 7) Hours_available_for_balancing_family_life / hours_awake etc. The bottom line is: I'm desperately looking for a place to work as a resident this coming year and I want to optimize my number of applications with a limited budget, to ensure an open door somewhere, no matter what discipline. Its almost vital for me that I find a match this last year. So, I have to ensure my success of a residency admission. Hence, I'm open for almost anything and anywhere in the nation. And I thought, with very limited choices open for me, it will be easier to find a spot that others dislike. Hence, the question. [BTW: I'm a US Citizen, ECFMG-Certified (USMLE-I & II) candidate].
