2021-22 Active Residents
The table below displays the number and percentage of 2021-22 active DO residents by race/ethnicity (alone or in combination) and specialty. "Alone or in combination" indicates those who selected a race/ethnicity category alone or in combination with another race/ethnicity response. The sum of the race/ethnicity categories may not add to the total number of residents since a resident could designate multiple race/ethnicity categories. For example, in 2021-22, two active DO residents who identified as American Indian or Alaska Native alone or in combination with any other race/ethnicity response were training in Anesthesiology. Race/ethnicity data are only shown for U.S. citizens or permanent residents. The "Non-U.S. Citizen or Non-Permanent Resident" category may include residents with unknown citizenship. Data are for graduates of DO-granting U.S. schools. Counts and percentages shown for specialties do not include counts and percentages for the related subspecialties.
