I'm interested in going into one of these fields and was wondering if anyone had any further information on of course, the inevitable lifestyle question and on the general work these specialists do and what types of cases they treat. Are there any "typical" patients (the pediatric crowd, elderly people) in endocrinology or rheumatology? Thanks :)

I just wanted to warn you that you are going to get flamed for asking about this specialties. As these fields make huge amounts of money and have reasonable hours, no one will believe you are inherently interested in these areas.

Seriously though, these fields seem interesting intellectually and have the potential for a better lifestyle, I would imagine. Reimbursement would be low- medium compared to other IM subs.

Good luck,

I'm sorry--I wasn't aware of that. Reimbursement isn't really the question I was asking though--I was wondering more about the actual work they have to do, typical conditions they have to treat, groups they have to work with, that type of thing.

addicted2hope, thanks for the link :)

Hey Pink,
Sorry about my post. I was being facetious. I should have added a smilely face or some such symbol. I think rheum is fascinating intellectually, myself. However, for me, it would be disheartening dealing with AI dzs which are generally difficult to control, let alone cure.

Good luck on your search!
