It doesn't change your scope of practice/salary nearly the same way. That being said, I'm sure doing a biomechanics fellowship would make you a more desirable hire for any practice
You are comparing different allo residency options. How about an ortho that does a fellowship in spine/knees/f&a/peds/trauma/sports med etc... still an ortho.
Seems similar to a pod doing a fellowship in trauma/peds/deformities/sports med/RRA etc... still a pod.
Why would a pod not want to get additional training in an area of interest?
