What are the GA specialities?
I've watched up to season 6 in entirety and I'm quite confused about what the speciality of the doctors are.
Derek - Neurosurgeon
Sloan/Alex - Plastics
Arizona - Kids?
Callie - Also kids?
Christina/Teddy - Cardio
Izzie - ?
Meredith - ?
Bailey - Kids
Lexie - ?
April - ?
Addison - Babies?/Women
Did I miss someone?
Callie is a Orthopedic surgeon (bones)
Bailey is a general surgeon (which is all the stuff that doesn't fall under another specialty, such as appendectomies)
For Arizona, you could call it by the proper name of pediatrics. And Addison is OB/GYN
The rest of them haven't settled on specialties yet. Well, Mer was neuro...
Alex has chosen Peds and Avery might be Plastics. Izzie isn't on the show anymore. The rest haven't chosen yet.
Avery is in plastics but since he passed he'll be an attending next year, Lexie is most likely going to go into plastics (Since more than Likely Sloan/Grey will either be engaged or married and they love giving couples Scene at work so they'll end up pairing them at work, to create more drama) Seeing as April Failed, I wonder what she'll go into next year.
Lexie has been working a lot with Derek so I see her going into neuro more than her all of a sudden switching to plastics.
Derek/Lexie working together had everything to do with M/L's Storyline, Lexie has only ever talked about plastics, She also mentioned that she doesn't really care for Nuero. Next year i think we'll see M/L working together again.

Christina - totally in it for the surgery & the technical challenge, occasionally has moments with patients if they remind her of her own issues.
Mark - always bonding with his patients and totally into their stories.
Callie - tough love with her patients, honest and sees the irony in situations, loves surgery & the technical challenge of it.
Meredith - not into medicine or surgery that much, talks a good game but not shown as more than an assistant, more into people and empathizing with them. Has little regard for the truth or ethics if they get in the way of what she wants or doing what she perceives as helping a friend.
Owen - best at brooding looks, has a great lower lip droop, likes trauma and fixing it, cool head in a crisis, not into patients' life stories, lacks confidence in his own authority and has minimal communication skills.
Derrick - great hair, likes a challenge, has a good bedside manner but doesn't brood over patients' personal situations, probably since everyone he treats has a terrible personal situation that resulted in their needing brain surgery.
Alex - totally into his patients' life stories, often strongly affected by them. Willing to risk his career for a patient & his mom. Tenacious in finding medical solutions to tricky problems and skilled at execution of those solutions.
Bailey - very skilled general surgeon. Great people skills, particularly leadership and team management. Personal life a mess. Willing to settle for controlling self centered boy friends as long as they are hot.
Sloan is also an ENT (Ear, nose, and throat) specialist

Bailey is General as is Richard
April- I think she was going for Trauma but I don't know what they will do with her now
Lexie-moot point now since she's gone. As I recall she couldn't handle the way certain patients looked in plastics
I think all the attendings are pretty good with patients (the more senior doctors)Bailey,Arizonia,Callie,Owen,Derek,Mark) The rest have varying dergrees on bedside manner except Cristina. Alex is my favorite among that group.
