    resident origin

    When you say "resident", a doctoral course, what is the term derived from?
    Does it mean that he or she doesn't have to circulate, remaining in a certain area or office?

    Re: resident origin

    By "resident" , I mean a medical doctor who finished an internship. I wonder why it's called "resident", related to "reside".

    "Doctoral" is an academic term, relating to a PhD or other doctorate. It's not a medical term, nor an adjective related to medical doctors.

    Re: resident origin

    A resident is the first or second (internships are disappearing) step on the way to becoming a specialist. These people don't travel. They spend years in one program improving their skills.
