I would like advices and guidance on the career I'd like to pursue; which is becoming a Pediatrician. These are decisions I've made so far: 1. I've completed my BSc Honours degree in Microbiology. 2. I've applied for my Master's degree in medical Microbiology and Immunology and also Master of Public Health. Now, where I am a bit confused, is the turn of events till I enroll into pediatrics. I initially thought that enrolling into a medical Master's course was going to be a prerequisite to enroll into pediatrics, but I researched, and it doesn't look like it is going to be as smooth as I think, how silly of me. What do you recommend? What are the steps I should embark on, inorder to reach my goal to become a Pediatrician? Any advice is quite welcome.
I have really enjoyed my Peds rotation as well as IM rotation and their ambulatory options and can see myself enjoy doing either of them as a career. So I was thinking of taking electives in both in order apply to both. Anyone got any thoughts on this? Is it a good idea? You or anyone you know has done this? Would it reduce my chances of getting accepted if Carms Committees see that I have taken both electives?
