    1.) Neuro surgery
    2.) pediatric surgery
    3.) vascular surgery
    4.) ICU
    5.) Emergency medicine
    Very interesting for me I've always thought I would like a specialty didn't think it would be OR related though. But I do like neuro's.

    Bottom 2 were Psychiatry and Child & Adolescent Psychiatry.
