Listening Infectious Diseases Specialty

Hello, I'm looking into residency programs and I really want to do Infectious Diseases. Anyway, can anyone help me with the path I should take. First IM or combined IM/Ped and then ID, or is a one year program enough and then I start the 2-3 years of ID?

ID is a fellowship, not residency.

You can go to it after finishing IM or after finishing Peds or after finishing IM/peds.

When your residency training contains peds curriculum you can choose Peds ID instead of adult ID.
