Learning about physicians
What happens after medical school?
All physicians, whether MDs or DOs, become house staff or residents at a teaching hospital to gain practical experience under supervision of skilled medical staff.
In their first year following medical school, these physicians are sometimes referred to as interns.
Physicians who select a specialty field will devote three or more years to hands-on advanced study and perhaps even more time in subspecialty training as fellows.Back to FAQ
