Is She a Resident, Fellow, or Attending?
I am getting a mini tummy tuck done at UPMC's "resident clinic". I've done research on the MD doing my surgery. She went to med school and did a plastics residency in Brazil -Ceara- then came to US and did a gen surg residency and has been practicing for a few years. She is married to a PS and UPMC has her listed as an "independent resident" but if she is already a gen surgeon wouldn't she be a fellow if now doing plastics? Anyone able to better explain this to me? Thanks!
