Just had a question for all Orthopods... why is it there is a stigma perpetuated by everyone and validated by orthopods that you guys are not very intellectual, don't like books, hate studying and so on?... when in fact the top students score wise from my school match in to Orthopedics... I mean is it just to sound cool? or is there some truth to this? Because Orthopedics is one of the most competitive residencies accepting only the top applicants and clearly this goes against the stigma.
