Members don't see this ad.
Any advice would be helpful.

I'm an MS3, aiming for a specialty with medicine and procedures/minor surgeries.

Important to me:
Patient interactions and care
Lifestyle (more-so in terms of work-life balance than $)

Didn't mean to stalk you after participating in your thread in allo (randomly noticed this), but if you have no urology research or activities would you be willing to take a year off? If I recall you are currently an MS3.

I only have research in Neuro-Obgyn and Endo-Onc, so don't have research in Ophtho (which I'm considering) nor Uro (which is maybe a 3rd choice).
Once I make the decision on a residency (which hopefully will be in the upcoming week or two), I will try to get involved asap in research in that field.

Urology residency definitely doesn't fit your goal of minor surgeries and procedures. You could tailor your practice to only doing smaller procedures if you like, once you get out.

I imagine ophtho and derm as the pinnacle of specialties with lifestyle and minor procedures.

Closing as this is crossposted in Allopathic.

Also, I've never heard of the term lifestyle being used in the same sentence as Ob-Gyn.
