    What Specialty Should I Choose!?

    Many medical students find themselves wondering this question every time they step foot into a new ward...well you no longer have to spend hours of time contemplating the answer!

    The University of Virginia has developed a questionnaire which will ask you 130 questions and rate your tendencies alongside the tendencies of physicians in different specialties. The higher your score for a given specialty, the more similar you are to the physicians in that specialty.

    Try it out and post your specialty "match" here!

    Here's the link:

    Here are my results, I couldn't help but laugh out loud when "urology" came up first. Maybe it was some sort of a glitch haha, well atleast it was "some-what" accurate because my first choice, Ophthalmology came 5th! But urology..no way, no how.

    PostMy results

    This is my top 10:

    1 Radiology
    2 Pathology
    3 Nuclear Med
    4 Preventive Med
    5 Neurosurgery
    6 Pulmonology
    7 Infectious Disease
    8 Emergency Med
    9 Neurology
    10 Psychiatry

    I'm not sure why Radiology came up first. I've no plan going with that. #dull
    My choice would be between Pathology and Neurosurgery, I guess.

    The previous posts are having errors when I click the link so I didn't link to my results and just copied my top 10.
