    What a great visual aid for those choosing a specialty. Still doesn't make it easier to choose which pathway though!

    No OB, peds, case management, ortho, infection control, psych....?

    Soo many specialties and sub specialties! Critical care in itself has so much more sub specialties. Can someone list off all the ICUs?
