Default how many month of observership

Hi,
I did 4 months externship in sport medicine clinic, 1 month observership for internal medicine and I am going to do 2 months observership in neurology.
My first priority for residency match is internal medicine and I want to apply for neurology as backup plan. But the problem is that I just have one month of observership in IM. Can it have a bad effect on my application? I have my LORs and I don't need more. Do you think I need to find somewhere and do more IM observership instead of neurology during the months left to the residency applying time? Or the programs don't mind that I did observership in IM or neurology.

Thanks
