Medical residents are defined as salaried employees, not post-docs, whether they are paid by an university or a hospital, and they are subject to all pertinent taxes, including FICA (social security). Some residents also have post-doctoral fellowships to which fellowship tax rules apply. But this is in addition to their regular salary, which I believe is what is under consideration here.

Ah. I figured there was a distinction in there somewhere. Thanks for the clarification. I was just a little curious as to what was going on.
