    A fellowship is further "subspecialty" training after residency. for example, a surgeon does 5 years of residency to become a surgeon, but can do a 3 year fellowship in cardiothoracic surgery. another example, you do 3 years of residency in internal medicine, then a 3 year fellowship in cardiology, GI, hematology/oncology, pulmonary, or whatever.

    it means you have that much more training, and you will be paid more in the end (because fellowships generally pay only slightly more than residency, like 45K-50K).

    Its amazing 16 years oout of high school and hundreds of thousands in debt and you can fianlly get a job with a decent salary.
    When you become my age you will realize all of the hard work and studying was worth the effort.
    "60 years young" another 60 to go if my doctor sons keep me alive with free prescriptions!!
