Resident Physician

Resident Physician

Resident physicians, known as residents, have earned medical degrees and practice medicine under the supervision of fully licensed physicians, usually in a hospital or clinic.

Medical residency provides in-depth training within a specific branch of medicine such as family practice, internal medicine, psychiatry, orthopedic surgery, general surgery or other specialties and builds upon the broad range of medical knowledge and basic clinical skills learned in medical school, enabling the physician to get more hands-on medical practice experience.
