Welcome to the 2021-2022 Residency Navigator season. Last year, 90% of 4th-year medical students used Doximity’s Residency Navigator to discover and explore over 4,000 residency programs, 275,000 ratings and reviews, alumni maps, specialization analyses and more.
Today, we’re excited to announce the launch of the Nomination and Satisfaction Surveys that power the Residency Navigator. There are two surveys that power Doximity’s Residency Navigator:
- The Satisfaction Survey: current residents and alumni who have graduated in the past 10 years are asked to provide feedback on several program characteristics and submit an anonymous written review of the residency program where they trained. This survey’s data powers the free-text reviews and ratings on your program’s page, but does not influence the ordering of programs on the site (research, reputation, etc).
- The Nomination Survey: eligible board certified physicians can nominate up to five residency programs that provide quality clinical training in their specialty. This survey’s data is then used to construct an ordering of programs.
- April 29th, 2021: Nomination & Satisfaction Surveys Open
- June 4th, 2021: Nomination Survey Closes
- New policy re: Satisfaction Survey Close: In an effort to provide the most up-to-date, relevant program reviews to our users, we will no longer be closing the Satisfaction Survey. We will continue to publish reviews in a timely manner after the launch date in mid-July. However, the Satisfaction Survey must be submitted by June 4th in order to be included on the 2021-2022 Residency Navigator on launch date.
