When you apply in ERAS, there's what's called common application form, this is basically your CV put online in ERAS and all residency programs that you will apply for will see it.

If they see that you have jumped between IM and ObGyn they may not like it. It's better to focus on one specialty to get a complete strong application.

If at all, do similar specialties such as IM and FM or IM and neuro but IM and ObGyn do not rhyme together
