From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

A fellowship is the period of medical training in the United States that a physician may undertake after completing a specialty training program. During this time (usually more than one year), the physician is known as a fellow. Fellows are capable of acting as attending physician or consultant physician in the generalist field in which they were trained, such as internal medicine or pediatrics. After completing a fellowship in the relevant sub-specialty, the physician is permitted to practice without direct supervision by other physicians in that sub-specialty, such as cardiology or oncology.

Recognized internal medicine fellowships

Most medical sub-specialties have formalized fellowship programs that are accredited by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME).
