Default ERAS Program Category !!!!!!

[COLOR="yellow"]Categorical-C Programs[/COLOR] that begin in the PGY-1 year and provide the full training required
for specialty board certification. Training lasts three to seven years.
Primary-M Categorical training in primary care, internal medicine, and primary care
pediatrics that begins in the PGY-1 year and provides the full training
required for specialty board certification.
Advanced-A Training that begins in the PGY-2 year, after a year of prerequisite training,
and typically lasts three to four years.
Preliminary-P Transitional or specialty one-year programs that begin in the PGY-1 year and
provide prerequisite training for advanced programs. Residents in one-year
transitional programs rotate through different hospital departments every
few months.
Physician-R Training reserved for physicians who have completed an aspect of graduate
medical education. Because reserved programs offer PGY-2 positions, they
are not available to fourth-year medical students.

What does all these category means and who can apply for the specific category.
I am an IMG from India with previous experiance in Pediatrics, so what category should I choose.????
