I?m a MD from an european university accepted in a 2 years research fellowship in an american medical school.
I would like to know how it would be possible for me get the PhD. degree with my research done, is this possible ? Or I need to spend 5 years before get it doing a graduate program?

Interesting question. I don't believe it is possible for you to get a PhD on work previously done outside of a formal academic program. The good news is you don't need one. Most research positions only require a doctorate of some sort and post-doctoral experience.
