Alex at the start of his fellowship

A fellowship is the period of medical training in the United States and Canada that a physician, surgeon, or dentist may undertake after completing a specialty training program (residency). During this time (usually more than one year), the doctor is known as a fellow. Fellows are capable of acting as attendings or consultants in the generalist field in which they were trained, such as internal medicine, pediatrics, or general surgery. After completing a fellowship in the relevant sub-specialty, the doctor is permitted to practice without direct supervision by other doctors in that sub-specialty, such as cardiothoracic surgery or pediatric surgery.
