It's geographically in a location that is good for me and my family. I've read residency reviews about them on SDN's "scutwork" page, but all the posts there...

    First, thanks for reading this! I know it is long. I am pretty set on FM. I love it to death. I also really love women‘s health.

    How do I know surgery is the right fit for me?

    I'm doing internship in Europe at the moment and I'll need to pick a specialty in April. The thing is, that I am completely lost and can't put my finger on what to pick. I find bad sides to every specialty when I think about it and because there are so many choices I have analysis paralysis...

    Not naturally good at procedures

    Like the title says, I feel that I don't have the talent some of my co-residents do when it comes to procedures. This made me shy away from them early in the residency, which made the situation worse. I'm in my second out of three years now. I know there's enough time to practice, especially...
