I would need aditional information, however it is a training that you receive when you are attending school. Like a practicum.

Michael’s Answer

Like an internship after graduation. You have completed all or most of your "book learning" and this is an opportunity to get hand-on training without having all the responsibilities of a doctor or psychiatrist. You are supposed to get feedback and advice on the different cases/people you work on/with to build your skills. You also train across several different groups of people (populations) to get a wide variety of experiences so that you have more practical knowledge to draw from when you begin your career yourself.

Michael recommends the following next steps:

If you are looking at a particular school they may have information on the website regarding what different residency programs look like. They may even have open-houses or other opportunities to talk to students directly about their residency experiences
