It is ok to apply for multiple specialties within the same hospital. Programs do not and legally cannot communicate applican information between each other. Besides, each program receives close to 2,000 applications.

The only exception is different tracks within same program. Seach for preliminary vs. categorical application in this forum. The point is to select only one.

Both AN and EM are very competitive.

Preliminary IM is mostly for applicants who apply for advanced specialty, like Anesthesiology and need preliminary PGY-1. In my opinion, prelim is tgougher to get if you do not have exceptional profile and PS that demonstrates your ability to get advanced position and sustantiate the need for preliminary year.

I agree with Anatolik. My friend applied for Prelim IM and didn't get the position even though she did have exceptional profile and PS.
