    Nontraditional Student - Aiming for Ortho, Need Guidance

    Hey guys and gals, this is my first post on SDN but I've been lurking the forum for nearly 10 years now. Over that time period I've fallen off the path to medicine, worked in finance (mainly mortgage banking) and headed straight back to medicine after I realized that I don't care much for...

    Orthopedic Surgeon Specialty (specialties)?

    Just a quick question, since I believe this is my first post on this forum. Can an Orthopedic Surgeon have two specialties, such as Sports Medicine AND Spine? Or something like Sports Medicine related to the spine?

    Hi SDNers, I have some free time and so am happy to answer any questions you may have about the myths and realities of orthopaedics, resident life, and general questions. Just avoid the "what are my chances with score X" questions-- so many better posts and options on this site for that...
