I'm applying to internal med residencies, and I'm mystified by the terms Preliminary / Categorical / Categorical with MPH. Please let me know;
(1) What's the difference? Does Prelim mean you're hired for only the 1st year and then you're off somewhere else (if you can get into PGY2 somewhere else?)?
(2) What does "Categorical Mean? Aren't they all different categories anyway?
(3) What is "Categorical with MPH"
Preliminary/Categorical/Categ with MPH means what?
