Audio Digest Foundation (ADF) produces our Medical topics.  If you currently subscribe to a specialty with ADF, you will not be able to take that same specialty through ASI because you may duplicate topics and not receive credit (i.e. If you subscribe to Emergency Medicine with ADF, you will not be able to take Emergency Medicine with ASI).  You will need to select an alternate specialty.
