    well

    http://www.nrmp.org/res_match/data_tables.html

    Look here. I think the one you refer to is a subcategory of 'internal medicine'. It says 'medicine-emergency'. As you can see, only 19 total seats available in the entire nation. That means you probably cannot get one of those seats unless you are a U.S. graduate near the top. You can also see from this table why plastics is insanely competitive...it's not about applicants, it's about sheer seats available.

    I applied for the combined Peds/EM and regular EM spots last year. Peds EM has only four seats each year. I would say these were less competitive b/c most people going to EM struggle with the 3 vs 4 year programs and few ever consider doing 5 years. IM/EM is good to do the drawback is that most programs offering this are 3 year EM programs, so when you're a fourth year and fifth year resident you're presenting to attendings that strated with you which may chap your hide a bit. It also means two years of internship; a huge drawback. Of course, your a stud in either field when you finish. Just enjoy delaying that gratification.
