vital signs ested residents usually have solid research experience, have clinical experience in that subspecialty, and have published research papers or case reports. (Note: The surgical subspecialties described in other chapters, such as urology, have their own separate residency programs, which include a foundation in general surgery but do not require completion of the entire general surgery residency. They are also not considered fellowships).
