A residency is usually part of the training for physicians. The residency is a period of advanced training upon graduation. This consists of a supervised practice of a specialty and instruction for more experienced specialists. The time period for residencies varies depending on the area of specialization.
The AMES residency is designed to provide advanced training and an immersion in MET. This is a year long program.
A residency is required to make sure specialists have the depth and proper training to practice their area of specialization. The AMES is the first METI. Its a very deep dive into the application of exercise for clients with medical conditions.
