Fire Thread Two close specialties in one hospital ???

I really want to apply to multiple primary care programs like peds \ IM \ FM atc. But. Is it bad to apply for exampe to peds and simultaneously to IM\Peds in the same hospital ? Is there any chance that it could affect decision about interview?

Short answer: No. Do not apply to multiple specialties in one hospital.

Programs in one specialty want to know you are dedicated to their program and that specialty. They do not look kindly on people applying to multiple specialties, especially in the same hospital. And, you better believe program coordinators and directors talk to each other so you will be found out.

Pick your favorite and apply to that program.

Even if the specialties are similar, it's incredibly risky to apply to more than one program per hospital. More than anything, programs want to see you are passionate and focused on them.

Ultimately, the choice is yours, but you will most likely lose both programs rather than getting Matched to one.
