Radiology. If I could switch specialties that's the one I would do. Derm is nice but you have to walk around and talk to people. I don't like walking and people are tricky. I'll take a MI at 75 for a life of not walking, thank you very much. I also don't want to talk.

Hope that helps.

But you get to do so wearing Gucci or Ferragamo loafers paired with scrubs, and your interactions are <5 minutes. It's like walking on clouds drifting from room to room casually. That's pretty damn comfy.

Any specialty you can do via tele medicine. You don't have to leave your house. You don't even have to wear pants. Apparently I'm not allowed to not wear pants at work because it's "unprofessional" and "probably illegal". I'm waiting until the day I can operate from home with my remote da vinci robot.

Telepsych for sure. Had an attending whose wife did exclusively telepsych. She'd literally go in their basement 2-3 days a week for 4-5 hours in her bathrobe, see nursing home patients via her computer, and still pull in 6 figures. Discovered what my retirement plan was going to be on that rotation, lol.

Radiology. Sit in an ergonomic desk chair in scrubs in a dark room. Have cup of coffee and some snacks. Read by the flickering light of a ... massive high-resolution monitor.
The call can be brutal, but yes, it's super comfy for me. Plus, if you're in an open reading room, you can chit-chat whenever with your colleagues, play some music, etc.
