Anything out there?
Officially it's specialty rather than speciality.

I would think cardiology is a fairly internal medical specialty with lots of opportunities to do procedures.

In fact many medical specialties actually have a significant proportion of practical procedures, e.g. respiratory and bronchscopy, gastroenterology and endoscopy. However cardiology with their stenting, electrophysiology (pacemakers), inserting heart valves probably is the most procedural medical specialty.

You may also want to consider interventional radiology.

Also this is the wrong forum to be asking this question. This forum is for discussing of Health rather than medical specialties and work.

What? Why? Cardiology (until this year) has been less competitive than our specialty, at around 2.5 to 1 competition ratio at ST3. If you can't manage that than I don't know what else to recommend.

Radiology is much more competitive than cardiology. Don't let competition put you off, if that's what you want to do.

Maybe you can do GP with specialise interest in minor surgeries?

That's really not normal, and is a far bigger problem than for just cardiology.

Anaesthetics/ICM? Lots of procedures, time in theatre, albeit not operating, but still lots of applied physiology, multi-system disease etc.

Ophthalmology? Surgical but also has medical aspects including diabetes, hypertension, thyroid eye disease, etc.

I would also agree with O&G, especially if you do obstetrics with an interest in maternal medicine or similar.

Depends how much of each one you are looking for and what aspect of medicine you are actually looking for.

Most already mentioned - Cardiology, radiology (IR), intensive care, dermatology (lots of excisions and in larger centres they will do mohs/local flaps/grafts), Opthalmology.

There are subspecialties within surgery that will provide you with an increased medical requirement - cardiothoracics for one tend to be pretty hot on the medical side, Hepatobiliary are often pretty good albeit within their zone of interest.

If it is physiology and critical care that you like but you don't want to be an intensivist then the other option is to become a trauma surgeon via the general/vascular surgery route with a current push to increase the production of "resuscitative" surgeons within MTCs which are heavily involved in the management of critically unwell trauma patients (though not to the extent of the American surgical intensivist equivalent).
