    I'm a 4th year medical student applying to a med/peds residency. I ultimately would like to do hem/onc (either peds or adults or both).

    Would doing Med/Peds enhance or hurt my chances in obtaining a hem/onc fellowship in adult hem/onc or pediatrics hem/onc? Or do fellowship program directors prefer categorical medicine residents or categorical pediatrics residents? Just wondering!

    It wont make any difference either way. Do combined med/peds because you genuinely like both fields, not because you think it will make you more competitive for fellowships, because it makes no difference.
