I am a female who is about 5'1" and 90 lbs. I was once interested in ortho but that quickly died after I realized I would need assistance more often than not on major surgical procedures. There are many reasons why I have decided to pursue urology. I know urology has its fair share of long and grueling cases, but will my size be a detriment to success in this field? I understand training will be extremely hard and tiring, but I do not plan on pursuing further training in oncology. Rather, I'd prefer endourology or pediatrics. I have been told by several peers who are not in urology to rethink my decision based on the strength requirements of the field and what my build can handle. Any thoughts? Thanks!
