Specialty pathway choices for doctors

I often get asked about how many specialty areas there are within medicine, and to find out more information on specialty training pathways to help people make decisions.

There are alot of things to consider when thinking of your specialty choice – how long is the training? How much does it cost? What are the pre-requisites?

The below 3 websites are on high rotation on my reading list as they are so comprehensive and provide alot of information about different specialty areas.  They do not cover every single pathway that a doctor may choose to take but provides information about the training pathways.
