It provides questionnaires to help you assess how well suited you are for the specialties that you're considering.

In addition to the book, there is a companion site at The Student Doctor Network that includes interactive questionnaires, links, and the latest information on each specialty.

Our forums community is staffed entirely by volunteers and serves pre-health and medical students as well as residents, doctors, and other health professionals. SDN is published by the Coastal Research Group, a nonprofit 501(c)(3) tax-exempt educational organization.
