I have already started thinking about what i would like to do for the rest of my life, after med school, and i scared myself a bit, and i now dont know if medicine is right for me. would there be a residency or specialty right for me? i dont want to do surgery, i want to have more patient contact than a surgeon would have. lets also assume that i am interested in all areas other than surgery. i am somewhat worried though, if something suddenly goes wrong, and the patient is about to die, i am afraid that i wont know what to do. is this normal among premeds? this alone is the reason why i have mostly just been considering family care, because its not often that they have to deal with that situation.
