    Hmm, I think this is a bit far-fetched considering I’m still an undergrad, but I would like to specialize in Ophthalmology. I haven’t chosen a sub-specialty yet but right now, I am inclining towards Retinal Ophthalmology. I liked this specialty because it involves the use of high-tech machines, is a balance of surgical and clinical care and as I’ve always adored the human eye, I would like to learn more about it and try new treatment techniques (mostly some I’ve thought of). Secondly, I believe that various eye diseases and especially blindness can be prevented through cheaper, simpler and more effective methods, most of which are in presently my head, but I hope to share them in due time. The biggest plus is the short working hours and the short, clean and neat surgeries that give quick results. I think it would be a really satisfying feeling to be able to give people their sight back. That makes it all worthwhile.

    Off course, I too tried many medical specialty tests and came across flowcharts too, and they all lead to every other field beside Ophthalmology. The most memorable one is the UV’s Medical Specialty Aptitude Test (check it out here if you haven’t already) which suggested I go into Rheumatology. Don’t know what’s the connection there! :D
