Bread and butter

I will give you the best advice I got when picking a specialty. Make sure you enjoy the day to day most mundane aspect of that job. Every specialty may have some “cool” thing it does or some subspecialty that seems appealing. You should not pick based on that because it’s unlikely that your days will be filled with that cool thing and you may not attain that prized subspecialty.

If you enjoy the bread and butter and very generic aspects of a specialty then you should pick that because you may well end up doing that for the rest of your career.
