I want dual certification in Family Practice and Emergency Medicine, assuming I live long enough to get them. I want to practice in doctor-starved areas where I may be the only game in town, so this seems like a good combo.
Actually, some "green book" hospitals which have loan repayment plans are in such areas, so I could become a perpetual resident, pursuing one specialty after another. I'm too olde to build a private practice, and I wouldn't mind spending my remaining days in a hospital (as a doctor, that is).
Just think, I'd be the first U.S. doctor in history to be board certified in fifteen specialties and not have a penny to my name at the time of my death. Neat.
