Hey, I'm a premed student and I have always considered going into cardio but upon further thought i have become more interested in orthopedics and sports medicine, mostly because i feel its is the best way to marry my passion for athletics and medicine. I am still very young and want to keep and open mind all the way into my 3rd year of Medicine and so I wanted to ask if my interest in sports and athletics and the study thereof, of the biological mechanism involved, is a good enough reason to be considering Ortho. If not however, i would love some input on what some other options might be for me. Please note, money or length of training are really not too big a factor for me however, I am concerned about how long the hours are cuz i plan on being as involved as possible in my family. Thanks.
