  Residency (medicine) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Residency is a stage of postgraduate medical training in North America and leads to eligibility for board certification in a primary care or referral specialty.
Residencies as an opportunity for advanced training in a medical or surgical specialty evolved in the late 19th century from brief and less formal programs for extra training in a special area of interest.
Residencies are traditionally hospital-based and in the middle of the twentieth century, residents would often live in hospital-supplied housing.
