Hi forum.
I have a question : I apply to IM categorical, but in the same time considering my desire to also apply to another specialty which needs IM preliminary year. For IM programs which have both preliminary and categorical, what will be the effect of selecting both tracks at the same time? Please help:sorry:
Thank you very much.

Don't do it

The selection committee for the categorical and the prelim is usually the same or at least having common members.
Therefore, it's risk to apply for both in the same hospital.
They will say, this guy is not focused and is not dedicated.

What if you are applying to a Categorical Ob/gyn position and also a preliminary ob/gyn position in the same program?? Can that be recommended?
