    I am confused as to what it means to specialize in internal medicine. better stated how does an individual become a cardiologist or gastroenterologist (just examples)? do they enter IM residencies directly that have a focus or do they apply to programs after completing a residency in IM. How hard is it to enter into a subspecialty of IM (if that is the case)? if anyone knows the percentage of IM that go on to specialize and does being a FMG affect your chances?

    thank you

    PLEASE, do a search on this topic. It has been covered MULTIPLE times. There is a 'search' link which is very helpful.

    Just a FYI, you have to do a fellowship after your 3 year IM residency to 'specialize' in cardiology, GI, etc.
