Hey guys,

I'm straddling between going into EM and IM and I do not want to do a combined specialty. How will this look if I'm applying to the same programs but under EM and IM? Will this be conveyed as having a lesser degree of interest to the PDs, especially when I'm applying to both at the same location? Location is important to me b/c I am trying to move back to SoCal. Thanks!

Sometimes they find out, usually the do not. The IM dept in most programs is in a separate location/different R coordinator/etc

But, I would think most faculty would understand why someone would apply to both fields. Although they are VERY different in terms of management, the knowlege base is fairly similar.

We wouldn't even notice at my shop. Unless you tried to couples match with yourself.
