I know this question has probably been posted and answered a billion times, but . . . Can anyone explain the timeline for applying for fellowships? When do you have to decide what, if any, fellowships you want to apply for? Can you apply for more than one fellowship specialty at a time, or is it a pain (like doing a separate application when applying to more than one kind of residency)? What, if anything, needs to be done during intern year to start applying for fellowships? As a 4th year getting ready to graduate from med school, am I expected to know what I want to specialize in? Any pearls at all would be appreciated. Thanks.
