This may have been already mentioned in a previous thread, so I apologize ahead of time if this thread is redundant. Do most, if not all, military and civilian residencies require a intern year? Also, when websites say there program is x amount of years, do they usually count the internship year if it's required? I'm asking this b/c I am interested in ortho, and I have heard that it is usually a 5 year program. Does that mean I payback 5 years (5years of residency + intern year) or 4 years (4years of residency + intern year), if I choose a military residency?
