Training for doctors does not end when they graduate from medical school. After an internship following the first year after medical school, doctors begin training in their speciality during a fellowship. Physicians who are interested in radiology, the study of medical images, can apply to fellowship programs at medical centres all over the country. Applications for the majority of programs are managed through the National Resident Matching Program.
