  its because you cannot do Neurology without 1 year of IM at uni of rochester it seems like
so usually people do a prelim IM year before going into neuro

maybe their program is not a 4 yr program where u automatically get your first year in IM and then conitnue onto neuro

some programs are 4 yrs (1 IM, 3 Neuro) and some are 3 yr Neuro only for which u must complete 1 yr of IM first

hope this helps
