Medical Fellow

A medical fellow is a term used for physicians who have completed three or more years of residency and have chosen to pursue subspecialty training. For example, if you are hospitalized for a traumatic injury, you may see a “trauma fellow.” Fellowship programs usually last for one to three years. The goal of most fellowships is to produce academic and clinical leaders and involve physicians in patient care, research, and education.
