Hey y'all, I'm trying to pick between Peds, MedPeds, and FM. One huge thing I'm trying to figure out is:

What is the difference between going into pediatrics, then getting a fellowship in Sports Medicine vs FM to sports medicine?
-are you restricted to pediatric Sports issues (peewee football, etc) or are you now Sports medicine who sees all age groups in the spectrum of sports related injuries?

Just thinking out loud, I strongly dislike OB/GYN. If I can do SM from Peds or MedPeds and treat professional/semiprofessional athletes...I'm dropping FM like a hot potato (unless it has bacon, butter and cheese).

Pediatricians see young adults too (up to mid 20s in some cases), and this age group is going to constitute the vast majority of athletes. The difference will really be your eventually comfort level with the younger kids that you would treat in sports. However, I don't know the answer to whether or not you can become a team doc from Peds vs IM, as most professional team docs I see are ortho surgeons who specialize in sports, rather than medicine based sports med docs.

I know what you mean about "not being a professional team doctor." I'll gladly leave that to the OrthoPods! I just wanted to see if I could practice a relatively wide array of SM from peds.
