Hi, I have searched the forums for some info on this but really have no definative answer. I was previously considering radiology as it is very interesting to me and I enjoyed my first year course in it as well as time spent with a radiologist, until I got my board scores that is! I really want to practice in a more rural area and I know that there is a great need for radiologists in some semi-rural areas such as the UP of Michigan where I am from. I want to fill that need and serve the people up there as they need some good docs too. Ok, so here's the deal...does under 200 (by one point) completely put me out of the radiology ballpark? I already plan on an early Step II and hopefully rocking it. I would be interested more in community based as opposed to pure academic programs. Suggestions on where to look or should I just consider another specialty? Thanks!!
