Info Combined programs

Are any of you planning to apply for combined programs (like med/psych, FM/psych) etc?
Just wanted to know if they are more competitive? As an IMG, how difficult is it to get into them?

I am not an expert, but from what I have seen is that there are few of those programs making them more competitive

Makes no sense to apply to one if you ask me. Still got to pick one field once youre done so why put yourself through all that stress.

Thanks for the replies guys. But for eg will it tougher to get into an IM program than it will be to get into IM/FM combined program or is it the other way around? Haven't been able to figure that out

combined will be more competitive
simply because there are less of such programs and there'll be a bunch of nerds applying to them just because they want to be able to brag they are doing a double residency
so low spots, decent amount of applicants = competitive
