    I'm not sure what you're asking. Are you asking if residency is the same as post-graduate training?

    If so, the answer is yes, although residency is a form of post-graduate training, it is not the only one, as fellowship would also be considered post-graduate training.

    To obtain a residency or post-graduate training in the US, you must complete the steps toward ECFMG certification: http://www.ecfmg.org
