    So i'm a second year medical student and I'm thinking of applying to something like neurosurgery. Say if I start my core/specialist training, but then i find neurosurgery too stressful, would it be possible to become a neuroscientist or do something research related instead?

    As the name suggests a neuroscientist is a scientist i.e. would you be looking to stop practising medicine completely?

    Have you considered other clinical specialties to do with the nervous system apart from neurosurgery e.g. neurology or neurophysiology (or thinking more broadly: neuropsychiatry, neuroradiology, stroke medicine, ophthalmology etc)?
