ok, I am a smart, inquisiive person, who loves to problem solve. Sorta like a trouble shooter. I also get bored with mundane detail and routine. I will also admit that im kinda lazy too. With that said, what specialties would you suggest for a person like me?:confused:

So you're basically wondering what specialty will tolerate a lazy, inattentive resident?

ER might fit the bill because aren't they the guys that, within 2 hours, send pts home, to the floor or to the morgue?:)

Seriously, at your residency interviews, I wouldn't mention anything about the boredom with details and "kinda lazy" part.

Plus, please stay out of anesthesia. We don't need people like that. But, on second thought, no specialty does.

A person who is lazy and easily tires of details doesn't sound like a person who could survive the medical school I went to.

Well, in the ER, things can get mundane for the OP. I mean after all, my collegue and I joked yesterday that if I had a shift where I DIDN'T have to do a pelvic on a female, something would be wrong. Then again, attention to detail may mean the difference between life and death of a patient. And laziness? I don't think we are right for him as well, at least when he would be on shift.

How about Path? At least he can't kill anyone there with his attitude.
