I'm a 4th year and have been set on radiology for a while now, but recently I've become unsure about it. I'm on an elective right now, and while some aspects are interesting, I sometimes get these moments where I tell myself "I can't do this for the rest of my life." On paper, rads has so many positives, but when I'm actually there shadowing and trying to be engaged, I find it lackluster and dull. I want to do more procedures, not just sit all day reading CT after CT. I feel like I'd get burned out doing that really fast. Now I'm curious about anesthesiology since procedures seem to be the bread and butter of the field. I'm not sure if I should really look into it or not.
