How does the residency process work following medical school?

I want to go to medical school, and I know this is followed by a residency, but I don’t know a lot about that process. How does the application process for residency work? Do residencies focus on specialties? #medicine #residency #medical-school #healthcare #hospital-and-health-care

In residency, you may apply for a specialty. One good thing is that you do get a paycheck in residency. Specialty residency does require additional time.

Once you choose your desired specialty, you will apply to residencies in the fall of your fourth year of medical school. You will receive invitations to interview, and those interviews will occur during the fall. You will this rank your chosen programs from best to worst. They will rank their favorite applicants from best to worst. The "match" involves a computer matching students with programs based on those rankings.

During medical school, choose a specialty. During 4th year, apply for a residency in that specialty. After 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.
