In what specialty you are doing fellowship? and why did you choose psychiatry then?

It's a surgical field, I initially did the residency in this field because my father is a famous surgeon in that field in my country, but I always wanted to be a psychiatrist. My real passion is the connection between mind and body, and I'm not the first person who switch fields.

Oh yes, you are not the first and not the last.
Good luck with the psych application
