Choosing a particular specialty is sometimes difficult. The process generally occurs over a period of time, and there is plenty of opportunity to change your decision along the way. While most medical students settle into a particular career path during their third or fourth year, some begin down a certain path and change along the way during or after their post-graduate education.

Please use this section of the site to guide your decision-making process. The Specialty Descriptions section contains information about 20 individual specialties.
