    Ones that come to my mind include urology, surgical oncology, breast surgery specialists, colorectal surgery. These are ones that tend to have a lot of medical mgt. or screening/follow-up type duties and have more clinic days than general surgery, plastics, ENT, cardiothoracic, vascular, etc.... who might do 1 or 1 1/2 clinic days a week.

    The top two I have always heard mentioned are otolaryngology and opthalmology. A lot of time spent on diagnosis and management, and as much time as you see fit in the OR.
