i have heard many good things about physical medicine and rehabilitation. however, i have been told that this specialty is not for anyone. what qualities are needed by a med school student going into PM&R? what are the pros and cons? from what i know, pm&r does not a stressful residency, 50 hour weeks are normal after residency, and the pay is decent ($130,000). plus, there are many subspecialty options to choose from, i.e. pain management, sports medicine, etc. this all sounds good to me. am i missing something about this field?
