Default Question about switching residency after 1 year

Hi friends!

I am interested in only Internal Medicine.But if I apply for others like Family medicine/Pediatrics, can I switch to Internal Medicine after first year of these residencies(If I didn't match in IM but matched in FM/Ped.)? If I switch, do I have to start from 1st year again?
