    For all the Navy docs on the board:

    Say I do a FM internship at one of the Navy FM sites, then do a GMO/FS tour, am I locked into a FM residency (by the shear fact that I did a FM internship)?

    Or can I decided to apply for some other non-surgical
    specialty (i.e. EM, rads, path, etc) in my PGY-2 application?

    I've reviewed the Navy GME website and it doesn't speak directly to this situation. Thank you in advance for your replies.

        But you may be less competitive by virtue of the fact that you couldn't rotate in the department you're interested in. I'd say you should try to do a transitional internship, if possible. If not, try to get some time in one of the places that trains in the specialty you're interested in.

          From what I have read in researching the GME sites, to do ER you need either Transitional or Surgery for your internship. I havent been out there yet so there may be ways around the system.

            Don't think thats right. Most do transitional, but I know of a couple of IM 'terns that did ER.
