Resident and Alumni Eligibility Email Template

Dear [resident/alumni name],

Surveys for Doximity’s 2020-2021 Residency Navigator open on Thursday, May 7th. If you are not familiar with Residency Navigator, it is a residency program directory used by 75% of 4th year medical students to explore over 4,000 residency programs, including our own, across 28 specialties.

These are the two surveys you may be eligible to participate in:

The Satisfaction Survey: Allows current residents and alumni to provide ratings on several program characteristics and submit an anonymous written review of the residency program where they trained.

To be eligible, you must be a Doximity member who is either (1) a current resident who has completed at least 1 year of residency OR (2) an alum who has graduated from his/her program within the last 10 years.

If you have already completed a Satisfaction Survey before, you will be ineligible to participate again.

The Nomination Survey: Asks eligible candidates to nominate up to five residency programs that provide the best clinical training in their specialty, which is then weighted to construct an analysis that is nationally representative of the opinions of board-certified U.S. physicians in that specialty.

To be eligible, you must (1) be a Doximity member who has completed residency and (2) a U.S. board-certified physician in one of the 28 specialties covered by Residency Navigator.

Please make sure to include our residency program with years attended on your Doximity profile by May 1st. If you have completed residency, please also include a current, valid Board Certification on your Doximity profile.

We appreciate your participation in this year’s surveys for the 2020-2021 Doximity Residency Navigator to help provide applicants with an inside perspective on what it’s like to train and work in our residency program.

Best,
