I'm interested in learning more about some of the medical specialties and was wondering where to start on the web. Anyone know of a good site/resource?
Thanks!

Hello T.,
A good question. Every speciality has a governing body and you can do an internet search on the different specialites. For example for the Pediatrics...It is the American Academy of Pediatrics... www.aap.org and it has vital stats on peds and tons of info.

I like scutwork.com. It not only lists what residencies are available where, but sometimes they are reviews associated with it which outline the typical schedule encountered. I find it helps me get a general sense of what to expect after medschool and maybe beyond. :)

Thanks everyone, these are great resources!

Rugratdoc, I was wondering, do doctors who specialize in something like pediatric endocrinology first do residencies in pedi and then the fellowship? Or do they specialize in Pedi after doing the internal med and fellowship?

Thanks!
Theresa
