Pediatric Oncology

As a first year med student, I don’t know what specialty or residency I want. There’s are too many fields I haven’t fully considered yet. However, after viewing a gallery from one of my favorite picture blogs, The Big Picture, I might not have a big enough heart to go into pediatric oncology. I haven’t ruled it out yet, but it’s just so sad sometimes and I’m not sure if I could not be pessimistic seeing this picture day-in and day-out for twenty years.

    I’m curious what kind of a doctor you saw yourself being. Did you picture yourself working in a hospital, a clinic or in a hut? Has it changed from the (few weeks) that you’ve been exposed to it?

    To be honest: I don’t know what kind of a doctor I want to be. That doesn’t mean that I don’t know why I want to be a doctor, I just haven’t figured out what specialty/ setting/ location I want to be in.
