Richard’s Answer

After medical school, residencies last 3-6 years and can be followed by additional years of subspecialty training.

Internal medicine, family practice, and pediatrics are on the lower end with 3 years of training.

Urology can be 5-6 years.

I am an interventional radiologist (IR). I had a one-year internship, 4 years of radiology, and 1 year of IR fellowship for a total of 6 years.

Estelle’s Answer

They usually take 3-6 years, but that really depends on the specialty. It also varies if you decide to do a fellowship after residency. Is there a particular field that interests you?
