Now it is the time of year when all of us fourth years are tying up the last run-on sentences in our residency apps and tweaking the final paragraphs of our personal statements. It also means that if someone asks you what you’re going into you better have an answer. Here are six concrete signs that may indicate that you should go into OB-gyn.
1) You have a brochure for stress urinary incontinence in the front seat of your car. You’re not sure why. You don’t really want to get rid of it in case you might need to give it to someone at some point.
Sometimes it is difficult to be self-analytical and introspective, so if any of these happen to be true for you (especially the stuffed uterus), you should probably consider that perhaps you are destined for a career in OB-gyn.
