Will you be able to have an MD-Ph.D If you want to become a cardiovascular surgeon?

It is not necessary. To become a cardiovascular surgeon, a physician must hold the Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine (D.O.) degree or the Doctor of Medicine (M.D.) degree, be a licensed physician, and complete specialized residency and fellowship training. A plain old DO or MD with the proper training in cardiovascular surgery (residency/fellowship) is what you need. The D.O./Ph.D. and M.D./Ph.D. dual degrees are more research-oriented.

How long is a sports medicine residency?

As a physician, sports medicine is a subspecialty of family medicine, internal medicine, emergency medicine, physical medicine/rehab, pediatrics, or orthopedic surgery. This being said, sports medicine is not a residency, it is a fellowship. A physician must complete a residency in one of the aforementioned specialties prior to applying for and initiating sports medicine specific training. The previously listed residencies last from 3-5 years depending on the individual specialty, and in turn adding additional qualification in sports medicine would require 1 additional year of fellowship level training. In doing so, one would obtain a variety of procedural and diagnostic skills, as well as gain an increased familiarity with specific musculoskeletal imaging.


What does Fellowship mean in the medical community?

A "FELLOWSHIP" is the term for a period of time (usually one or two years) where a person whom is already a "general" practitioner (already a "doctor" in general medicine who can diagnose, treat, and prescribe medication independently in general medicine) becomes a "fellow" in a desired field of medicine (such as obstetrics or oncology) and thus has a supervising physician whom is already a specialist in that field that they work under until their training is completed. Once their training is completed, they take the testing involved in becoming a "Board Certified" specialist in that area of medicine. (this answer is specific to the United States and Canada)
