I've noticed in ERAS that for KU ( and likely other programs), in addition to the Medicine-Preliminary option it also lists options like Med-Prelim/Radiology, Med-Prelim/PM&R, Med-Prelim/Dermatology, Med-Prelim/Radiation Onc.

I'm not familar with this, so I wanted to ask what this means? Do you have to be applying to the stated specialty to be applying to these programs or is it a mix of the said specialty and preliminary medicine?

Those spots are reserved for the listed sub-specialty.

Gotcha, thanks. So in that case, would the prelim and the residency have to be at the same program then? (Ie, would I have to be a resident at said program to do an intern/subspecialty year at said institution)

Yes. Typically, those spots are often over the institutional CMS resident quota and at least partially paid for by the advanced program. At least, that's how it works at my institution.
