Frequently Asked Questions

The National GME Census and other online surveys ask similar questions about programs and residents. Can't these two surveys be combined into one?

Historically the AAMC and the AMA have collected GME data through their joint annual GME census. We understand that there are multiple surveys that must be completed, and we are working at reducing the duplication of effort. Meanwhile we are confident the benefits of completing the National GME Census, including creating a longitudinal resident database, and customized reporting with download capabilities, will outweigh the inconvenience of multiple surveys.

How and when does FREIDA Online get updated?

The data entered in the Program Survey of the National GME Census are used to update FREIDA Online®, the American Medical Association's Residency & Fellowship Database™. Regularly scheduled updates occur 3 to 4 times a year. For more information regarding FREIDA Online, email freida@ama-assn.org.
