After college and medical school, physicians complete a residency for additional training. These can last 3-6 years and are sometimes followed by an additional year or two of fellowship subspecialty training.

Dr. A is right. A vast majority of us do residency after medical school. Can't do much with a medical degree without it.

Hey Jeff,

To my understanding, residency is like an apprenticeship. It's after medical school and you're actually working in your field with the supervision of a physician.

Thanks,
Blake

Medical school is the foundation for medical training, but residency is the time for doctors to get the experience to practice taking care of patients with a supervising attending physician. It's similar to the difference between reading about surgery and performing surgery.
