In my opinion IM/EM is pretty competitive merely because there are so few programs around. According to JAMA, there are 9 IM/EM programs in the US, against the 107 programs for IM/Peds and 127 programs for EM. 91.4% of the IM/EM residents are US medical alumnae, versus 87.9% of EM residents being US medical graduates. Essentially, I believe that you will just have to be very flexible in the conditions of where you do your EM/IM residency if you really want to do EM/IM since you might not be able to match in the part of the country that you would like to be in.

Hope that this is clear to you
