Help Neurology residency and prelim year!

When we apply for neurology residency, do we also have to apply for I.M. preliminary?

Is it less competitive then internal ? i was looking at programs and found something about internal medicine and I' am confused

There are two types of Neurology Residencies; Categorical and Advance.

For categorical, you apply directly to PGY1.
For advance PGY2, you need to also apply for prelim IM PGY1 year.

Is it easier than IM?
It's not less and not more competitive than internal medicine, I'd say about the same competitiveness.
