I don't think it exists, but I could be wrong.

I heard someone call internal medicine a specialty. I know it's a type of primary care. Is primary care considered a specialty?

No. You could do one after the other if you wanted.

Google "Freida" it will point you to the residency listings.

I think most of the patients in surgery will require your medicine knowledge to some degree anyway.
