What specialty is equivalent to Spanish fly? My vote is for pediatrics- compassionate, good with kids, charming...
Nah, I think it's gynecology. But only if the gynecologist is nice and sensitive with his patients. Trust me, my mom has a big platonic crush on hers.DrVanNostran said:Neurosurgery or plastic surgery

Nah, spinal orthopods have the largest bank accounts. That is the best way to objectively determine which specialty is the rockstar speciatly.Oculus Sinistra said:I thought neurosurgeons were the rockstars of the medical community.
Rafa said:i think this q was brought up (complete with poll) in the allo boards about a year ago. i remember emergency medicine was well in the lead, with obgyn taking up the rear. as a guy, i've got to agree. em docs are the closest things women have to superman - they know how to fix *anything* on the scene, or at least clutch the dying patient in arms while roaring out, 'whyyyyyyyyyy?'. dermatologists, in comparison, look like vanity doctors. they can nip and tuck all day long, but (to paraphrase radiohead), gravity always wins in the end. and that's depressing. neurosurgeons are skilled, no doubt, but they're never home. and you can't make love to a man who's never home (and losing his hair to boot. by the time you're a full on nsurg, you're pushing mid thirties). so strike them out. i don't know enough about orthoapedic doctors to take them down, but if they have anything to do with feet, it can't be that hard. finally, pediatricians would likely be the closest match to em docs, for precisely the reasons given in the op. guys who are good with kids encourage their women to make kids - with them. but the eventual problem with having a ped husband is the superman syndrome. a pediatrician is the clark kent of the medicinal world - except he never turns into the man of steel. he isn't em. and it only takes one episode, movie, or cartoon to teach an ms1 that lois lane doesn't respect clark kent. she's knocking red boots with the man in tights. once again, superhero analogies are the only ones capable of describing real life phenomena. to summarize: if a woman can't have george clooney, she's going to go for the guy who seems to do what he does on tv, except in real life. that would be the emergency medicine physician.
Bah! I'm not sure. I only watched one episode of ER back in the day, and I don't think he was even in it! If he was, ignore the last two sentences of my late-night schpeil.Schaden Freud said:Wasn't Clooney peds?
Dunno. If a guy's a GYN, I could see that leading to a major backfire in the bedroom.baylormed said:Nah, I think it's gynecology. But only if the gynecologist is nice and sensitive with his patients. Trust me, my mom has a big platonic crush on hers.
I hope my mom never reads this thread.

"Hey, your dad's dying. Want to have dinner with me?" Is probably not the best pickup line.mchee said:I imagine you'd meet a lot of hot daughters and granddaughers in geriatrics
i disagree, some girls/women are really turned on by the guys that are good with children. it screams "daddy" which translates into something sexual. electra-complex anyone?lk2230 said:\
Peds: Less money than many other specialties, and saving kids isn't necessarily sexy. This will help you get women who are looking for the caring, compassionate type, most likely for marriage, but in terms of inspiring immediate sexual attraction it's probably not the best.
