Question Residency and Fellowship Application Simultaneously!

Can I apply for residency and fellowship at the same time?

I am an old IMG and I want to take all chances

Is this legal or possible?

Nice question,
I want to ask if I get surgery fellowship before residency. After that, I apply for surgery residency...Does fellowship help me too much ?
Is it elgibile to practise surgery ( or any field) although I did not enter residency even I did fellowship?

You can't get surgical fellowships before finishing your residency and USMLE Step 3.

Yes, you can
However please note that you have to create separate ERAS accounts and you have to send your documents to different mailing addresses and you have to purchase a different token for your fellowship application.
For fellowship token and further information check this link
