Is primary care sports medicine not challenging to you, since thats what you will eventually be doing? Think very carefully before switching to GenSurg. The hours are horrendous, and your time with friends/loved ones will most certainly change for the worse. If you are sure you want this and you are sure that you want to screw your program over by leaving, then yes, you could do it. You would have to reenter the match for a PGY1 position, and of course inform them that you have a year of residency under your belt.
What was it specifically about family med that you didnt like (just curious)..?
