Before Med/PA school: I had huge interest in Paeds and Surgery.
During Med/PA school: I solidified my interest in Paeds, realised I did not want to work in Surgery, found that Psychiatry was difficult to work in for me, and found new love for Family Med and Emergency Med.
Post Med/PA school: I have a job offer at Family Medicine with Paeds specialisation. However, I do want to gain more experience in Emergency Med in the future.
There is definitely no disadvantage in having 1 interests in medicine (in my pov). Every specialty is quite interesting, and you’ll always find yourself with some boring topics, but thats the same with every thing in life. The best way to go, is to enter med school with an interest, but also with an open mind.😇
