Agreed. Everyone is right/wrong on this thread, because everyone is working from a different definition, and everyone has seen teamwork or not at their own institution in various departments, which may be as different as night and day at other programs. So the short answer is probably that, depending on what you consider teamwork, there will be a ton of teamwork in ANY specialty, but not at every program. So if you are a team player there is probably a role for you in any specialty, but you have to pick the right program.
