Arrow 2 months USCE in 3 specialties, is that OK?

Hi folks
Suppose I have and afford doing 6 months in US as externships/hands-on experience..

which one is better for matching? doing 6 months in IM or doing 2 months in IM, Family and Pathology and then applying to 3 different specialties, or in that case my CV and application would be a mess and not dedicated to one specialty?

Your thoughts are highly appreciated !

I would recommend doing 6 months in IM. I work for an organization that has many Program Directors as consultants and I've heard them say multiple times that they prefer a candidate with one, in-depth and dedicated specialty.
