Thumbs Up Yes you can do it

In most of the hospitals, FM and IM faculties are different and they don't see each other or talk to each other often.

Therefore, when you apply to IM and FM they wouldn't know that you have applied to the other program and therefore there's no risk of you being caught as non-focused applicant.

So go ahead and do it.
