    Active-Duty Military, Online Master's Degree?

    First-time poster! I'm an active-duty Coast Guard officer looking to switch into the reserves and matriculate into medical school (D.O.) in 2024.

    Event coverage with COVID

    Sports Medicine Fellowship after practicing

    Based on the school's calculations, it will cost $300,000ish dollars to attend 4 years. I'm not made of money so I've looked into primary care scholarship options. Specifically, 1 offers $30,000/yr so long as I take a residency in the state for primary care and then practice in the state for 3...

    Ortho Residency

    Once through Ortho surgery residency, is there an opportunity to become a non-surgical orthopedic physician or does this put you at a huge disadvantage in some way? If not, how would this set you up to work with athletes (sports medicine) or become a team doctor?

    Sports medicine vs Orthopedic Surgeon

    So I have been interested in the two fields ever since I started playing sports. Well, more specifically when I tore my ACL and basically everything in my shoulder. I love looking at the MRIs trying to figure out what is wrong and reading up on different cases. The only thing that deters me is...

    DPT vs Sports Medicine DO/MD

    Hello all, After reading through all of the threads on DPT vs Sports Medicine Physicians, I'm still a little confused. I understand what a MD or DO can do that a PT can't do, but can someone explain exactly what a DPT can do that a sports medicine physician CAN'T do based on training? For...

    A brand new sport, meant to avoid most kinds of injuries

    Hi there! We all know that injuries cost a huge amount of money every year. Contact sports like football or martial arts are the frequent culprits, but other non-contact, such as tennis, also cause a lot of problems with its racquet's weight, among other issues. I've been thinking of a...

    Are specific FM residencies more tailored for sports medicine fellowships?

    So, I'm planning on applying to the next round of the Match next year to FM. Ideally, I'd like to do a sports medicine fellowship down the line, so I was wondering if it matters which FM programs I apply to? Are some programs more MSK/Sports med focused than others?

    Sports Medicine research

    Starting PGY2 year in Southwest. Initial goal was oncology but have hated the rotations thus far. Only other thing I enjoy is sports (yes, I know it's the other side of the spectrum). So I'm thinking of applying to PC-SM. I'm trying to think of how to 'explain' all my non-sports related...

    Primary care sports med compensation

    I was surprised to see sports medicine compensation relatively low compared to some of the other "primary care" subspecialty clinic settings. Why do you think this is? Compared to a field like A&I, which can have starting salaries easily in the 200s-350s range, sports medicine has many more...
