Question How competitive is combined Med-Peds residency!

I'm interested in both pediatrics and internal medicine, so I'm searching both specialties programs. While I was doing so, I bumped into Combined Pediatrics and Internal Medicine Programs, now I'm thinking I should apply for those programs, just not sure if it's a good idea because I don't know how competitive those programs are, and unfortunately, I passed the CS from the second attempt and have no USCE, so not the best CV..
Can anybody give me their peace of mind please..

Hi, it is competitive in general especially that AMGs like this combined specialty. Howver there are 25 IMG friendly programs that can invite you to interviews and match you, the list is on my site.
