Residency Program Rankings 2016

Doximity’s 2016-2017 residency program rankings have just been released, hot off the press! I compiled a list of the top 10 programs for each specialty based off a methodology taking into account multiple factors. You can filter the rankings to search by reputation, research output, size of program, percent subspecialized, and percent board certified. I have compiled the top 10 of each based on reputation and then by research output. You can compare this year’s findings to last year’s rankings, and see if there was much change.

Just a note about methodology, the reputation rankings are compiled from survey responses from physicians in that field, including both alumni and non-alumni of various programs. The methodology explains that, “To account for “self-votes”, raw votes were divided into alumni-votes and non-alumni votes. Alumni votes were weighted according to the % of the eligible physician population that a particular program accounts for within that specialty (number of alumni divided by total eligible within the specialty).” I personally am not entirely sure how that math works but it sounds like alumni votes for their home program were counted less than non-alum votes for that program.

I think overall, this program navigator is a good adjunct tool to your decision process in which many other factors come into play, such as location, research output, potential mentors, what you want to subspecialize in, etc. I will be writing a post next week about how I went about choosing programs and what factors to consider in this important decision.

And since I posted this last time and people seemed to enjoy it: (PS I definitely don’t wear high heels to clinic…)
