Residency is a stage of post-graduate medical training. A resident physician/surgeon is a doctor who has received a medical degree and practices medicine under the supervision of fully licensed physicians and/or surgeons, usually in a hospital or clinic. A residency may follow the internship year or include the internship year as the first year of residency. Successful completion of residency training is a requirement to practice medicine as an attending physician/surgeon. A resident may choose a residency in any specialty of their choosing but may have to complete years in more general training as prerequisites for some specialties.

Chief Resident Edit

The chief resident, as described by Sydney Heron, is "the fifth year resident that rules over all residents". The chief resident also handles training, call schedules and assignments of other residents on top of their own responsibilities to ensure that the department runs smoothly.
