    Can anybody share insights about Sports Medicine? Is it a general term or a narrow specialty? How is it different from Orthopedics, what kind of problems do you work with, what are working hours, salary, competitiveness, etc.? Thanks to all who reply.

    SPORTS MEDICINE IS A FELLOWSHIP (USUALLY ONLY A YEAR) WHICH YOU CAN DO AFTER EITHER YOUR INTERNAL MED, EMERGENCY MED, OR ORTHOPEDIC MED RESIDENCY. ORTHOPEDICS IS A SURGICAL FIELD. THEREFORE, IF A PERSON IS INTERESTED IN BECOMING A SPORTS SURGEON, HE/SHE WOULD HAVE TO DO THEIR RESIDENCY IN ORTHOPEDICS.
     
  4. You can also do a Sports Med Fellowship after PM&R and FP. Depending upon what type of Practice you want would determine which track to go.
