    (Or if you want to become a GP / Are currently in specialist training)

    I've applied to medical school and, although it may be early, I want to see which area of speciality may interest me so I thought it would be a good idea to see what others are interested in also.

    Not a medical student (yet); currently in sixth form and hoping to specialise in General Practice!

    If not that then perhaps Neurology or Acute Internal Medicine.

    Not a medical student yet, but I've always liked the idea of EM. I'm sure my preferences will change as I go through medical school gain more exposure though.

    that's actual really interesting thinking about it tbh, im not sure their anatomy will be similar to a child's in terms of complications (bowing of legs, hunching etc...), but size wise I see no huge issue really

    Neither of those are surgical specialties. :confused:

    I'm an anaesthetist, just coming up to halfway through specialty training. My ideal consultant job would involve some obstetrics, some emergencies and some teaching work.

    Not in medical school yet but I'm really interested in surgery - haven't quite narrowed down which type but I've shadowed an orthopaedic surgeon which was absolutely amazing Just like the idea of anything particularly hands on.
