I am a rising junior in college and I know its really early to be thinking about this. I am positive I want to become a surgeon and have chosen three fields that sound interesting to me: Cardiothoracic surgeon, General surgeon, or Trauma Surgeon, in that order.

Hi Adam,

Cardiothoracic surgery is a great field to go into but it is also very fast paced. Surgeons not only have additional schooling after medical school, but they also tend to have more intense on-call hours. This means that in addition to the normal 12 hour shifts that they work they will also need to come in sometimes for emergency surgeries.
