Residency
Upon completion of a program, the resident will receive a diploma of completion, considered an official document, as distinct from a legal one. In both sponsored and affiliated programs, and where participating and cooperating hospitals and the BSOM chair think it appropriate, residents may request and receive a diploma from the individual hospital. If evidence of completion of an internship is needed, the appropriate hospital will prepare documentation in the form of a letter.

Upon recommendation of the program director, residents who have successfully served a portion of a residency program shall receive a residency diploma for the served training period. This will confirm participation in an accredited residency program.

Fellowship
Upon completion of a fellowship program, the fellow will receive a diploma, signed by the dean of the Boonshoft School of Medicine and the program director.
