9780071479417: The Ultimate Guide to Choosing a Medical Specialty, Second Edition

The one book medical students must read before they choose their specialty

Here is the first medical-specialty selection guide written by a resident for students. Readers will find an inside look at the issues surrounding medical specialty selection, blending firsthand knowledge with useful facts and statistics. The author includes invaluable insights from his personal experience, candid reports from current residents, and a wealth of research.

This unique resource is divided into two sections, the first of which delves into the art of choosing the right specialty and covers personality assessment, considerations for women and couples who are matching, specialty overviews, and the ins and outs of the residency application and match process. The second section comprises 19 chapters, each written by a resident in a particular specialty. These chapters include “The Inside Scoop”—revealing specialty lifestyles, training requirements, and predominant personality types.
