Claire’s Answer

You decide what specialty you want during your third and fourth year medical school years. However, it can be helpful (and looks good on your application) to shadow physicians during your college years.

During 3rd year of medical school, you will go on different rotations and that will give you an idea of what you want to do. You can also do 4th year electives if you are interested in a subspecialty.

Rahul’s Answer

You don't have to decide to be one kind of a doctor. Remember that thinking about a speciality and being in one are two different things. It is never too late to change your affiliation. It is important to follow your passion. Remember that not everyone who seems powerful is worh being your role model. It is important to make your own way.

Philomena’s Answer

Well if you have prior knowledge about specialties you can work towards the kind of specialty you want to become, however, in year 4 in med school you are given the chance to rotate through major specialties, this will help you know more about these specialties and make a decision in were you want to specialize.
