Residency Review


This Residency Survey has been designed so that medical students can learn about residencies directly from each other. This information can be very valuable to medical students who are preparing for residency interviews as well as for students who are trying to decide what residencies to apply to. We are committed to your confidentiality, and your name will in no way be associated with your responses.

Feel free to print out this survey and take it with on your interviews. Then, when you return from your interview, you can simply enter your answers online on the online residency survey.

Please answer each question to the best of your ability. The answer choices for each question are:
1=Poor
2=Fair
3=Average
4=Above Average
5=Excellent
