What is GME
Graduate Medical Education (GME), also known as residency training, prepares physicians for the independent practice of medicine. Medical students, during their fourth year, submit applications and interview to be accepted into a residency program; residency training is separate from medical school - and residency training is required of all medical specialties for board certification. The length of residency depends on the medical specialty; for primary care specialties (family medicine, general pediatrics, general internal medicine), residency training is three years.
