Table B3. Number of Active Residents, by Type of Medical School, GME Specialty, and Sex

2016-2017 Active Residents


The table below displays the number and percentage of 2016-2017 active residents who graduated from an international medical school, by sex, compared to the number and percentage of 2016-2017 active residents who graduated from MD-granting and DO-granting U.S. and Canadian medical schools. International medical school graduates include both U.S. citizens and non-U.S. citizens who graduated from any medical school outside of the U.S. and Canada. For example, there were 18 men and 31 women who are active allergy and immunology residents who graduated from international medical schools in 2016-2017 compared with 62 men and 159 women who were active allergy and immunology residents in 2016-2017 who graduated from a medical school in the United States or Canada. The majority of active allergy and immunology residents in 2016-2017 were women for both graduates from international medical schools and graduates from U.S. and Canadian medical schools. Counts and percentages shown for specialties do not include counts and percentages for the related subspecialties. Please contact residentreport@aamc.org with any comments or questions.
