Picking a Specialty:Pre-Med
I'm going to be a pre-med student next fall and was wishing to pursue neuroscience to hopefully become a neurologist. I was wondering if choosing a specialty after medical school is worth it since it is so competitive and the spaces for residency are so limited? #doctor #neuroscience #neurologist #medicine #healthcare
It is great that you are considering a career in medicine! After medical school, you will have your MD or DO degree, however, you are required to do specialty training/residency in order to have a license to practice. Even if you want to be a general doctor or primary care doctor, that still requires residency training. Do not be discouraged, it is a great learning opportunity and goes by fast. Good luck with your pre-med studies!
