MS05' said:An IM friend of mine got into a conversation about IM/EM and were wondering what the answer to the following question was;
If you are in an EM program ANYWHERE in the country that's not an approved IM/EM program, can you apply for doing a combined IM/EM residency?
For example, if you were in your intern year of EM and decided you wanted to do IM also could you? I said no cause you would have to be in an approved IM/EM program such as SUNY downstate, ECU, Maryland etc etc. But, the question was, if you met the criteria from the american board of internal medicine about meeting the 30 week requirements and did the same for the board of EM, in theory you could complete an IM/EM residency anywhere....
