Elie’s Answer

Hello Imani!

Although I am not in the field of medicine, I can tell you that there so many fields to choose from. Here are some of them:
- Internal Medicine
- Dentistry
- Ophthalmology
- Pediatrics
- Neurology
- Psychiatry
- Podiatry
- Chiropractic medicine

and many others ! I have also included below a link to a more in-depth list that can help you getting familiar with them.

Lastly, if you think about entering the field of medicine, the first four years of your undergraduate degree will allow you get familiar with a lot of those specific fields. For the next 3 to 7 years you would have to choose a specialization that you will continue with.

Hope this helped! Good luck!

Now, if we look at one of those specialties, like radiology...

One can also pursue a sub-specialty...

And looking at Pediatrics...

They might work as a primary care pediatrician. However their practice might be narrowed down to one of the following sub-specialties...
