It's no way near Gray's Anatomy.

It's closer to the residency life in your country than anything else.

Choosing a specialty necessitates that you actually be there and see what they do in each one of them. No words can give a true picture.

Smile Hmm, it's kinda hard yeah . .

So the best how we can see is do the USCE? I'm just afraid that back in my country most of the disease is all about infection and Malnutrition, and none of them many in USA. Besides the clinical setting from a development country and develop country is different, Right?

Yeah right, the best way is to do USCE and you are absolutely right about the difference in patient population.
