Table B1. Experiences of First-Year Residents by Specialty

2021-22 First-Year Residents

The table below displays statistics on research experiences, publications, work experiences, and volunteer experiences for all active first-year residents in 2021-22, by specialty. For example, the average number of research experiences for 2021-22 first-year residents entering Anesthesiology was 3.0. Data are for graduates of MD-granting and DO-granting U.S. and Canadian schools and of international medical schools. International medical school graduates include both U.S. citizens and non-U.S. citizens who graduated from any medical school outside the United States and Canada. Specialties are excluded if more than 90% of the entering residents in that specialty have prior training. Please contact residentreport@aamc.org with any comments or questions.

Selected Finding: The distribution of experiences for first-year residents varies widely across specialties. There is also substantial variation of experiences of entering residents within each specialty.

1. All PGY1s in Pediatrics and in Obstetrics and Gynecology are included in the table above, including those for whom the position is a preliminary year for another specialty. Preliminary positions were not reported separately because they make up less than 3% of the first-year positions in each of these specialties.
