What is it like being a Pediatric Surgeon?

Julie’s Answer

Pediatric surgery is an extremely stressful career, you would need to take lots of science and pre-med classes in college, followed by med school.
Rewarding? Yes. But count on lots of hours, lots of anxious parents, and being on call more often than adult surgeons, because it is such a specialized field.
Good luck!
