First-ever national study of medical and surgical residencies coming next week
On Wednesday, Doximity and our partner US News & World Report will launch never-before-seen data on residency programs across the US. The report will detail the top 10 residency programs in the country across 20 different medical specialties based on over 50,000 peer nominations from board-certified physicians.

This will be the first time that fourth year medical students can access detailed program information along with a free interactive search tool, called Residency Navigator, designed to help them find the right program for their interests. The national Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS) will begin accepting medical student applications on September 15, 2014.

Both the Institute of Medicine (IOM) and the Association of Health Care Journalists (AHCJ) have recently made public requests for increased transparency into residency training.

Media and program administrators can request a preview of the residency data by emailing . Rankings will be published Wednesday, September 10, 2014 at 8:00 am EST.
