I am a third year med student having a lot of trouble deciding on a specialty, but I remember enjoying my pediatrics rotation. I also like seeing kids in family medicine. I never really thought of myself as being one of those stereotypical "great with kids" types. I am a very friendly person and like the friendly, warm, fun atmosphere of pediatrics... I like pediatric hospitals and I like pediatricians. I just wonder if this is enough to choose pediatrics as a career. I'm afraid that I'll go this route and then turn out to not have a knack for it.... I am good with adults because I take time to talk, am patient, etc. but I feel like I would burn out on adults not taking care of themselves, social issues, and the atmosphere of adult medicine, which just seems more competitive with less friendly personalities. I know these are generalizations, but I'm more than half way through my third year and still really struggling with what to do.
