Default trasitional year before IM?

Hi guys,

can anyone tell me if I can apply for categorical IM program PGY2 after transitional year?

I would like to apply for transitional as a back-up plan (I know it's tough!), but my plan is IM then oncology... so not sure if it makes any sense.

Please someone answer!
Step 1 [240]; Step 2 CS [passed first time]; Step 2 CK [244]; YOG (2006); residency in my own country (2013);13 months USCE/Research; GC holder
