Question Applying in Different tracks for IM

I am in the process of applying. I have come across several programs that offer more than one track for IM. Is it possible to apply for more than one? Like for IM can I apply for both categorical as well as primary care (categorical) program? Does anyone know what is the difference between the two?
Thank you!

According to what little I know , primary care program will have rotations mostly related to outpatient services and categorical focuses more on inpatient.

Between. Primary care and categorical, the difference is the amount of time than you spent in primary care settings and inpatient. At the end you take the same board.
