About this year's Residency Navigator survey
Who is eligible to participate in the surveys?
The residency satisfaction survey is sent to current residents who have completed at least 1 year of residency and recent alumni within 10 years of graduation who are verified Doximity members.
The residency nomination survey is sent to board-certified verified Doximity members.
Can I participate in the surveys more than once?
Board-certified physicians are welcomed to participate in the residency nomination survey every year. However at this time, residents are only allowed to participate in the residency satisfaction survey once. Residents who have taken the residency satisfaction survey before will not be eligible to take the survey again this year.
What is the difference between the two types of surveys?
The residency satisfaction survey asks current residents and recent alumni about several characteristics regarding their residency program experience. All responses are anonymized.
The residency nomination survey permits up to 5 nominations of 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. View research methodology.
When are the opening and closing dates for both surveys?
The nomination survey will be open from May 15th to June 15th, 2017. The satisfaction survey will be open from May 15 until Fall 2017.
When will the 2017-2018 Residency Navigator be released?
Doximity’s 2017-2018 Residency Navigator tool is projected to be launched in late June/early July, 2017.
