Table C1. Number of Graduates of U.S. MD-Granting and DO-Granting Schools, by Last Completed GME Specialty

New section

Medical School Graduation Years 2008-09 Through 2014-15

The table below displays the number of U.S. MD-granting and DO-granting school graduates from a given academic year who subsequently completed a residency program in each specialty, by type of degree program (e.g., MD-PhD). The data displayed are for the most recently completed ACGME-accredited specialty and subspecialty as of Dec. 31, 2019. For example, for the graduating class of 2014-15, Emergency Medicine was the last completed specialty for 1,368 MD graduates, nine MD-PhD graduates, 52 graduates with another combined MD-graduate degree (e.g., MD-MPH), and 427 DO graduates. The graduation years are shown in three-year increments, from 2008-09 through 2014-15. Individuals who are shown as having completed a residency may be active again in another residency program. Counts shown for specialties do not include counts for the related subspecialties. Please contact residentreport@aamc.org with any comments or questions.

Selected Finding: Looking at the 2014-15 graduates, 78.3% of graduates of U.S. MD-granting schools had completed at least one ACGME-accredited residency training program within four years of graduating, and 71.7% of graduates of U.S. DO-granting schools had completed at least one ACGME-accredited residency training program within four years of graduating.
