    What's the 411 on this field. I know that OBGYN is tough for men to get into these days but what about fellowships like REI? Also, what can a typical day be like, and what about call. Also, what's the compensation like for this field. Any input on the field is welcome. Thanks!

    One of our Reproductive Endocrinologists said something like, "I chose academics because I love to teach. I could have gone to Madison Avenue, in Manhattan, and made a million dollars a year with the rest of my friends, but instead, I wanted to stay here, for less than a third of that." If you can make 333,333.00 bucks in Columbia, Missouri, you could do much better elsewhere.

    It can be a high paying job.

    It is NOT the hardest post-Ob fellowship to get into, by the way. That would be Gyn Oncology. I asked my chief resident about competetiveness, and that's what she said.
