I'm a freshly graduated Medical Doctor and I'm about to decide on my future career.
I've used the word life-changing in the title because these two "jobs" will lead me to two different careers.
These jobs are actually specialities, where learning and working are combined for a few years (4). One of them is radiology and the other one is family medicine.
There's a very competitive test to get accepted and it's held on a yearly basis.
Luckily I've been offered the radiology job and nailed the family medicine test (hopefully I will pass this one too). But there's no guarantee at all that in future years I will pass them again, and honestly I think my chances will be lower since either option I'll take this year will lead me to sub-specialize in a field and focus on that field.
Both jobs have pros and cons in many aspects: Working life, social life, geographical location, money, many more long-term and short-term differences since one is an out-patient job and the other is in-patient mostly (meaning work inside or outside of the hospital).
I'm trying to find a way to decide semi-rationally: at the moment I'm listing all the pros and cons and weighting them on a -5/+5 scale. However I feel like, if I were to write down pros and cons it will have a significant bias in the final result.
What's the most rational way to decide which road to take?
