Data from two surveys are in part used to create the Residency Navigator.

The Satisfaction Survey allows current residents and alumni to provide ratings on several program characteristics and submit an anonymous written review of the residency program where they trained. The data from this survey powers the free-text reviews and ratings on culture, work flexibility, etc. on your program’s page.

The Nomination Survey asks board certified physicians to nominate up to five residency 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. When prospective applicants use Residency Navigator, they can sort and filter programs by criteria such as location and training environment, alumni research output and subspecialization rates, program size, and clinical reputation. The reputation component is powered by the Nomination Survey.
