Default No requirement

There's no research requirement by any residency be it IMG friendly or not. It's always a preference and not a requirement.

No specific duration is spelled out by residencies, the longer time you spent there the better it would be and for the best type of research for your residency application check what Sabio said here
What type of researches boost residency chances ?
