Estelle’s Answer

all great answers!
When considering a job in medicine, consider which you would like to go into a surgical specialty, perform procedures, or stick with routine office visits. This makes the long list of options easier to digest.

Rachel’s Answer

Some of the biggest differences in the medical field are between internal medicine vs. surgery vs. radiology vs. pathology.

Decide whether you like talking to patients, like working with your hands, like sitting in a dark room and looking at black and white images in a box...

The best way to figure this out is to shadow.
