    Hello, I am starting my first year as a family medicine resident. I am interested in applying to PM&R for next year though. I know that Anesthesiology will allow family medicine as a intern year, is it the same for PM&R?

    I am trying to get into Pain management.

    "One year of the four years of training is to develop fundamental clinical
    skills. This year of training in fundamental clinical skills must consist of an
    accredited Transitional Year or include at least six months in accredited
    training in family medicine, internal medicine, emergency medicine,
    obstetrics-gynecology, pediatrics, or surgery, or any combination of these
    patient care experiences. The remaining months of this year may include
    any combination of accredited specialties or subspecialties.
    Accredited training in any of the specialties or subspecialties selected must
    be for a period of at least four weeks. No more than eight weeks may be
    in non-direct patient care experiences, such as pathology, radiology and
    research. Training in fundamental clinical skills must be completed within
    the first two years of the four year training program."

    I meant pgy-1 position. I am also looking at going through the anesthesiology route to pain that is why I used ca-1.
