3rd year medical student here. I just want some insight about the OB/GYN specialty, competitiveness, residency, lifestyle after residency? I was interested in FM and IM before but now thinking about OB/GYN ... it's probably too late but I have a great reference letter from one of the staff here. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

I don't know if we have any obgyns on here regularly, but I think there are some significant differences -- namely, the surgical nature of the specialty and the in-house calls covering STAT emergencies with potentially devastating complications for mother and baby. The subspecialties range widely (maternal fetal medicine, reproductive endocrinology and infertility, and urogynecology for example ).

The whole rush in for a stat C/S st 4 am (or stay in house for a stat c/s at 4 am in some centers) really makes it less appealing. You are committing yourself to middle of the night work on a regular basis for life. 

That sounds fun at 23. It's a lot different at 43.
