I'm currently interested in a myriad of medical specialties, pathology in particular, however, what really fascinates me is Regenerative Medicine. However it's not actually a specialty is it? I was wondering if any of you has any input as to which current medical specialty leans the most towards regenerative medicine. As you can tell I'm a bit more into academics and research than the clinical side of things. Opinions anyone?

Yeah, I pretty much knew that, but just wanted to make sure. Thanks. Regardless, I'm still very much interested in the field. Any idea of some specific specialties probably combined with a fellowship that may lead to my interests in regenerative medicine?

What aspect of regnerative medicine are you most interested in? Are you interested in simply growing the tissues or surgically implanting them?

When it comes to growing the tissues, I get the impression this falls more into biomedical engineering. Your medical specialty choice might depend on the kind of tissue you want to grow. For example, an interest in growing nerve tissue might be related to an interest in neurosurgery, neurology, or even pathology (I met a pathologist who studies Alzheimers and would like to develop treatments to restore brain tissue).
