I orstudents currently in medical school, those tough premedical years may seem like a distant unpleasant memory. As a doctor-in-training, you have become accustomed to the competitive nature of medicine. Beginning in high school—and progressing all the way through college, medical school, residency, and fellowship—all aspiring physicians learned that they had to be the best. This is the only way to achieve one's career aspirations in medicine successfully.

To become a pediatrician, radiologist, or any other specialist, every medical student must earn a training position in a residency program. The competition for certain specialties and residency programs, however, can be rather intense. While trying to figure out which specialty is best for them, medical students still have to work very hard academically during these 4 years.

Unfortunately, many students rule out some specialty choices for fear of not being accepted. Everyone knows that some fields of medicine only have a limited number of coveted residency spots and an overwhelmingly large number of applicants. Other specialties are not as tough to match in. Instead, the fierce competition exists for the most highly regarded hospitals and institutions within that specialty.
