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. Orthogate is also a good site for their "ask the attending" section. A bit about me: orthopaedic trauma attending, female, in my 30s, practicing in an academic setting in the US. Did my med school (allopathic/MD, if that matters), residency and fellowship training in the Northeast (though not all in the same place/state). My practice includes admin/research/education/mentorship responsibilities as well. Ask away.
