What exactly is a PGY-2 prelim position?

Is it another way to say we need to find someone so desperate that they will do a second year or surgery further specializing with 0 opportunities to find a categorical position that we can use and throwaway?

Yes and no.

When I was a prelim PGY-1 in surgery, my program had two PGY-2 prelim spots. One guy was an FMG and the other was an American IMG. Both successfully transferred into categorical surgery programs.

The FMG directly transferred into a low-tier categorical surgery program as a PGY-3. The American IMG transferred into a solid community program but repeated PGY-2 year.

One of my fellow PGY1 prelim's stayed on as a PGY2 prelim and eventually became a categorical surgery resident at the same program.

Good things can happen with prelim PGY-2 spots. Things can also not go well too.
