Hospital Two programs at the same hospital

hi! i have read that it is better not to apply to the same hospital for more than one program/specialty....how true is this? i am planning to apply to internal medicine and psychiatry, but the majority of the programs that have psychiatry also have internal medicine programs, and so i was planning to apply to internal medicine in those hospitals.is it true that applying to 2 programs can hurt my chance at both of them? does anyone have any advice or has anyone had any experience?

i think you can apply to 2 different programs in the same hospital. Its generally not advisable to apply for 2 different tracks of the same subject eg prelim and categorical IM. i hope this helps

You can apply to two different categorical programs in the same hospital if they don't share the pgy-1 year (because then you will have to submit the specialty PS to that preli prog which may create confusion.

you can apply to preli med and cat med in the same progam but you have to submit a medicine PS and say in the interview that you applied to both tracks because you are very interested in there program.
