I have very good fine motor skills, mostly due to my love for drawing. I am particularly good with illustrating extremely fine details. Could this be potentially helpful if I pursue surgery? Also, are there any there occupations within the medical field where I could utilize my fine motor skills?

Thank you!

Technical ability is only part of what it takes to be a surgeon. Having a good eye is more important for some specialties than for others.

Other occupations: medical illustrator. Good pictures are so important.

I suppose I've never considered being a medical illustrator but that sounds SO COOL! Thank you for the suggestion, now I will have to look into it :)

using your head is sometimes more important than being able to use your hands in surgery.
