Medical School

Medical school usually lasts about four years with the first two years primarily consisting of classroom- and lab-based instruction while the other two years are more focused on clinical training through rotations at hospitals or clinics.

Graduate Medical Education

Sometimes called a “residency” or “fellowship,” graduate medical education is a period of additional training after medical school when a physician will learn more about a particular medical specialty.  It can last anywhere from three years to seven years, depending upon how specialized the field of medicine is.
