    As I understand it:

    Intern: First year resident

    Resident: PGY2+ (second year residents and beyond up untill final year of residency)

    However, for some fields like Radiation Oncology and Radiology I think you need to do a PGY1 (First year internsship) in Medicine, Surgery, or a transitional program before starting the actually starting the actual residency.

    This is correct (and it doesn't really matter whether or not you are doing a Preliminary 1st year [say in prep for a career in Radiology] or a Categorical one: all first year residents are commonly referred to as interns.

    All interns are residents but not all residents are interns. :D
