I'm thinking way ahead here but I appreciate you all humoring me. I've seen a few jobs, such as working as an RMO/P in the Foreign Service, which require a certain number of years post-residency before you are eligible to apply. They phrase it:
"Applicant must have a current board certification by the ABPN and have a minimum of five years post-residency clinical experience in adult or child/adolescent psychiatry with at least 50% of the applicant’s time involved in direct patient care during the last five years."
If, hypothetically, I were to fast track into a C&A fellowship after three years of adult psychiatry, would my "post-residency" clock start at PGY-4 when I'm technically in fellowship rather than residency, or would it not start until later?

Thanks for any insight.

They're looking for at least 5 years of clinical practice after any type of training, which would be 5 years after graduating from fellowship.

Agree that they probably mean after all of residency and fellowship are completed.
