    Hello guys,

    I am a PGY-3 resident in family medicine. Over the years, I've developed a tremendous amount of interest in neurology. I am considering to do a neurology residency. As per ABPN, one must complete internal medicine internship or atleast 6-8months in medicine internship. I wouldn't mind starting from PGY-1 but is it possible for ABPN/neurology programs to consider my 3 years of family medicine training and waive 1 year of internship. I am a bit concerned about this because University of Chicago neurology program states that family medicine residency will not be considered as a waiver for internship.
    Thanks for your help!
