Ok bear with me... I don't really know much about how the match applying to residencies work but... I am interested in applying to PM&R and I don't understand how the whole process works. From what I understand is you apply for a traditional rotating internship first year and then apply to PM&R. So you would apply to PM&R programs while you're in your internship year...this sounds a little unsettling to me considering that PM&R is a little competitive. What if you don't get in? Would a year in internal medicine or family medicine qualify for your intern year in PM&R if you were to switch? Do any programs include intern year if you match to their PM&R program? Thanks so much for your help, I really appreciate it!
