Question Registering in the NRMP

Hello all:

When we apply for NRMP, should we apply to the specialty we have interviews or everyone is in "Main Residency Match"? And USMLE ID and ECFMG ID are they the same?

Happy Thanksgiving!

ecfmg ID and usmle ID are the same! AMGs do not have ECFMG ID, they only have USMLE ID. IMGs have both!

when applying to NRMP, you do not have to specify which specialty you are applying to. You will not be asked this question during registration. However, when you rank the programs, you should indicate all the programs which interviewed you regardless of specialty and you rank them according to your preference.
