Question Applying in different specialties

I am intending to apply in 3 different specialties: IM, pediatrics and psychiatry, I think sometimes at the same hospitals... Is it a crazy idea? do the PDs see where you apply other than their programs?
Don't get me wrong, I love IM, but getting psychiatry or pediatrics residency in the US for me is better than IM in my country...

Thumbs Up Yes do it

You can do it.

They will not know.

Program directors will not talk with each other and list all the thousands of people who have applied for them.

Go do it and apply to as many programs as you pocket allows you.
