First Elective In Med School - Surgery Or Medicine?

Recommended Posts

Looking for thoughts on what would be a good first elective in medical school when you are trying to decide if surgery is your thing and have had zero OR exposure prior to it? Trying to find a good balance b/w getting exposure to surgery but also not too intense that it is a bad experience as a med 1. 

 

Apart from this, also curious to hear thoughts on what people's first electives were and any pros or cons to their choice.

 

Thanks!!

Do Gen Surg if you want to experience surgery. Its gives you a good taste of surgical lifestyle while still remaining med student friendly since Gen Surg is very used to teaching students.
