HopefulPA77 Posted March 14, 2018 Share Posted March 14, 2018 Hey everyone I wanted to throw this topic out there real quick to get some advice/hear some thoughts from current and students alike about specialties that they like. A little background about myself: I will be starting PA school in May, worked in a hospital for 5 years 2.5 as a Critical Care Tech in an Intensive Care Unit. Therefore, I always love the fast pace and the procedures and having to quick thinking. One specialty that I have obviously looked into is Critical Care and hopefully when done with school one option that I would love to do is go on to do a residency in Critical Care. However, for my school I get to pick two specialists that I want to go do clinical's in so I have been wanting to get ideas of other specialties that I would enjoy. One area that I have always been interested in has been heart and lungs (loved that subject in physiology/anatomy) so I thought about CT surgery; however, after seeing the ones in my current hospital it seems like a specialty that just gets overworked looks exhausting. One other area I have recently been looking into is possibly Interventional Radiology I have taken a few patients over to the Cath lab and have been fascinated by everything; but not sure if there are many PAs in that specialty. Overall I know I have a full year before my clinicals but I just wanted to get a better idea of what specialties I might want to look into. Any advice is appreciated. Thanks!
