    Allow me to clarify my vote:

    HELL NO!

    4 years is more than enough. Bring on the benjamins(and no sleep)

    Most definitely. Plain old vanilla OB just doesn't have the luster it once did for me. So I'm shooting for maternal-fetal. I think that combines my desire to work with complicated patients, do surgery, and still maintain continuity of care with women and their families, oh and the median income for subspecialists is slightly higher, which offsets the malpractice premiums.

    I am really interested in Uro/Gyn. Not too many programs have fellowships in it, but I think that will have changed by the time I am done.

    what does UroGyn exactly entail in practice? I've heard of it but not looked into it much

    i would love some more info on urogyn as well. i was pretty interested in uro, but it seems a tough match for an IMG...thought urogyn might be pretty cool as well. is it a long fellowship?

    however, if you are considering gyn-onc...most programs are 4 years. I'm at UC-Irvine right now and I know their program is 4 years- urogyn is 3 years.
