Richard’s Answer

With such a specific specialty you will be in high demand wherever you choose to settle. One issue might be finding the right type of job. If you are interested in academic research, you might be limited. There are fewer employers for academic physicians in each city. I believe UT southwestern would be your best choice as it provides physicians an opportunity for research and direct patient care.

Lindsay’s Answer

This is a great question to be thinking about. Realistically, however, the market changes rapidly enough that there is not much way to know the job market for your role 8 years out (I am assuming you are a pre-college student?), let alone 10-12 years out, which may be how long it takes for you to complete residency and move into your own practice.
