The University of Virginia School of Medicine has this online test that tells you what specialties you have the greatest aptitude for. My top 20 results:
|8||allergy & immunology||45|
|16||physical med & rehabilitation||44|
It’s interesting I got derm for #1 considering that every time we have a dermatologist guest lecturer show us pictures of the kinds of lesions he/she works with, my reaction is similar to this:
Nothing in the top 10 really interests me as of right now except for maybe ophthalmology. It’s so competitive though, I don’t know how realistic it is to match. I’m kind of interested in PM&R since there is some procedural aspect and it pays pretty well. Not to mention all the MSK training we learn as DO students will probably come in handy in this specialty. We’ll see, I’ll probably have to shadow a PM&R specialist when I get back to Florida. I’m going back in three days, by the way. It’s crazy.
