Is it beneficial to sub-specialize in pediatrics?

I want to be a pediatrician, but when I spoke to a family friend who graduated from medical school I was informed to sub-specialize rather than be a general pediatrician. I have considered this pathway, but I am fearful that it will be more difficult to find a job if I go that route. #doctor #medicine #nurse #pediatrics #pediatrician #health-care

Thankfully you have time! I found that in medical school, especially when you get the chance to rotate on your Pediatrics rotation, you can experience first hand what specialists do. So I would say keep the door open, shadow some specialists in the meantime and see if that is what you enjoy. Then in medical school once you are on rotations setup ones in Peds Specialties you consider and see what doors open for you :)
