Detail for CIP Code 60

Title: Residency Programs.

Definition: Programs that prepare medical doctors (MD), osteopaths (DO), dentists (DDS, DMD), veterinarians (DVM), and podiatrists (DPM) for certification as practitioners of recognized specialties in their respective professions. These programs are approved and accredited by designated professional associations and require from one to five years to complete, depending on the program. Residency programs that also result in an academic degree completion, such as an MS or PhD, should be reported under one of the clinical sciences codes located in Series 26, 51.05, or 51.25, rather than in a residency code located in Series 60. These CIP codes are not valid for IPEDS reporting.
