What Specialty Should I Choose!?

2480 Views 5 Replies 6 Participants Last post by  Username
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: Specialty Questionnaire! :D

Medical Specialty Aptitude Test

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 way, no how.
My 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. :D

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.
