About this year's Residency Navigator surveys

There are 2 different types of Residency Navigator surveys. 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.

As a program director, how can I make updates to our page?

Many programs have chosen to personalize their page by adding a paragraph that highlights special attributes about their institution. Program administrators are welcome to send a description (150 words or less) to be included on a program page. We also welcome a current resident and alumni list. Please reach out to us at residency@doximity.com for the most recent template.

Most program metrics are refreshed annually in the Summer and are aggregated from current residents and recent alumni affiliated with the residency program on Doximity. To ensure metrics are as inclusive as possible, we encourage residents and recent alumni to update their Doximity profiles to include an affiliation to your residency program.

If any program information is incorrect on Doximity, please contact us at residency@doximity.com.
