Residency Explorer Compares Students to Matched Applicants in Individual Programs in 23 Specialties
June 30, 2020
Residency Explorer is a resource for rising 4th-year medical students from MD-granting and DO-granting medical schools in the United States and international medical students and graduates who are applying to residency programs in 2020. It allows applicants to research individual residency programs in 23 specialties and compare themselves to applicants who previously matched at those programs as well as explore program characteristics across many areas of interest.
Residency Explorer is the only resource with original, source-verified data from the 9 national organizations involved in the transition to residency. While Residency Explorer does not tell applicants where to apply or predict where they may match to a residency program, it can help applicants research and develop a list of programs for further investigation. Last year, 9 out of 10 applicants said after using Residency Explorer, they felt more confident about which programs to apply to and felt more informed about the characteristics of programs of interest to them.
NBOME is a sponsor of Residency Explorer along with other national organizations involved in medical education: Association of American Medical Colleges, Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education, American Association of Colleges of Osteopathic Medicine, American Medical Association, Educational Commission for Foreign Medical Graduates, Federation of State Medical Boards, National Board of Medical Examiners, National Board of Osteopathic Medical Examiners, and National Resident Matching Program.
