Default med peds for IMG?

Is med peds a good option for IMGs?
is it IMG friendly?
Also is it more or less competitive compared to peds?

Any help with this info is appreciated.

Thanks

I'm not sure, as I find until now it's more competitive than peds BUT there're several programs where I saw 50-100% IMGs (I mean med\peds). These programs also ususally have peds residency where % of IMGs is even higher. So if you're applying for peds and want a "back up" that's not the issue. Because I wouldn't apply for peds and med\peds at the same hospital. Even though they usually have for example 10-14 spots for peds and 4 spots for med\peds. So the chance to match into peds IMO should be higher.
