yes they will tell you if your invited for categ or prelim program.
only categ is for IM. prelim is for interest in something else - derm, neuro, radio,etc. if interviewed for prelim, just say your interested to one of those specialties. otherwise, they get confused about what you really want & end up not matching you for prelim.

in the invitation email. it will say "congrats, you have been invited for #### IM categ program....." or "#### IM prelim program..."
i see. well that's a fair enough answer. am sure they will get your point.
good luck.
