Yeah. It's OK.
Make sure you don't tell any of them that you applied to the other

I have heard PDs can easily find out if you have applied to more than two specialities in the same hospital .......

same interview coordinator .... or a software program showing the applicants profile and applications ....????

how badly will it affect if they find out ?? losing the chance for interview ??

Nope. They can't find out.

Very rarely, I'd say less than 1% of programs, where PDs and Coordinators have access to each others applicants and even then why would they waste their time to try to match up their applicants!

In my University program, program coordinators do not know and do not have access to other programs applicants. That's pretty much the case in any program. That's the standard.

By the way, the NRMP rules make it illegal for them to try to find out which other programs you have applied to so if you find out they have done it you can sue them

Hey Sabio, i have read a post that selecting categorical & preliminary on the same program is not good. how about selecting both categorical and primary care, would it hurt my application? both have opportunities to do fellowships after grad, with categorical more chances. so its not a big deal for me either which of the two i would get matched. but will it affect my interview chances?
thank you.
