    I have been looking through possible residencies and I have noticed several programs having dual residencies like emergency medicine/internal medicine, family medicine/internal medicine etc. Does anyone know of any current or upcoming dual anesthesiology/internal medicine programs?

    Well my goal is to go into critical care...I know both fields can lead to that and I find both paths interesting.

    There are no combined or plans for a combined Anesthesiology/IM programs.

    If you want to be an intensivist, choose one or the other paths and do a CC fellowship. Either you want to be an anesthesiologist or an internist. The day to day practice of both is vastly different.
