Default #Doubt on Applying (Physician, PGY...)#


I am an IMG interested in some "advanced programs" as Radiology, Derm, Anesthesiology and further on...

First thing I realized is that, for example, Anesthesiology residency goes for "Physician, PGY-1 and PGY-2", with different number of spots available. I don't know about the difference between those and would like somebody to explain it to me...

Second: suppose I want Anesthesiology (PGY-2) as my final goal residency, and that I decide to go through Internal Medicine's preliminar program. Do I try to match both programs at the same year and, somehow, "reserve" my Anest spot? Or the only way is to try the Match AFTER my prelim program?
