Residency

Residency is a phase of postgraduate medical training certification in a primary care or referral specialty. It is filled by a resident medical doctor who has obtained a medical degree (M.D. or D.O.) and is collected almost completely of the care of hospitalized or clinic patients, principally with direct supervision by more senior medical doctors.

A residency possibly will follow the internship year or incorporate the internship year as the first year of residency.

Every specialty in medicine has established its own prospectus, which characterizes the length and content of residency training indispensable to practice in that specialty. Programs vary from three years after medical school for internal medicine to five years for surgery to six or seven for neurosurgery.

The residency can also be continued by a fellowship, through which the physician is educated in a sub-specialty.
