you can do an allergy/immunology fellowship after a peds residency, so you can do both!I am really interested in allergies and immunology. Besides that, I've been leaning towards pediatrics. I don't think I know anyone that has gone into the field that thought they would when they started med school so I'm trying not to form too many opens until I have more exposure.
aw that's a really depressing oneI'm definitely a peds person. I know for sure I want to work with kids, I just don't really know in what specialty yet. I have been thinking a lot about pediatric hem/onc lately...I like having long term relationships with patients....but I know that would be a kind've depressing specialty...
Yeah, but I've also read that Oncologists have one of the highest job satisfaction rates...I don't remember where, or if it was a legitimate source, but I could definitely see why after shadowing one. Obviously I'll probably change my mind, but every time I think of a specialty I keep coming back to this one. Who knowsaw that's a really depressing one
Won't it be interesting to look back at this thread in a few years?
I think I will end up in a subspecialty of IM, maybe infectious disease, rheumatology, gastroenterology. Anesthesiology is a small possibility.
Derma-Plastic-Neurosurgical-Ophthalmo-anesthesio-surgery ... but only Mon - Fri. I plan to open a chain of free health clinics in a string of third-world countries and practice there (free of charge) Sat and Sun.
That's an awesome idea. Actually, can we start a practice together? I'll get board certified in EM, IM, and Peds and between us we can just start our own hospital but its only open mon-fri. That way on the weekends i can go spelunking.Derma-Plastic-Neurosurgical-Ophthalmo-anesthesio-surgery ... but only Mon - Fri.

yup, i would love to do rural, fp. You get to do everythingrural fp....
It offers a little bit of everything and for the most part i can determine where and how i practice. My family comes first no matter what career path i choose. also in a rural setting there are less referals and more doing.
