Interestingly enough, it’s not the first time I have heard from Paeds specialists/aspirants that they somehow have a special way to understand children, like it’s almost a natural ability to resonate with them. That’s a beautiful quote from Grey’s and I feel happy that you’re in a field that you truly enjoy 😉
I do think there are specialties that are just a natural fit to us; not just something we have strong interest in, but that we have a natural ability to be good at.
On top of that, it matters whether the industry as a whole aligns with our core life values like ethical standards.
And of course, practical matters are important too like whether work hours/compensation suffice to support your personal life such as hobbies, or spouse/children if you have any. 😉
