  2. 2. Do Students Have Access to the Data They Desire When Selecting an Emergency Medicine Residency Program? BACKGROUND • In 2015, 2352 students applied for 1821 emergency medicine (EM) residency positions at 171 programs o 1613 4th year MDs o 739 non-4th year MD, osteopathic [DO], and international medical graduates [IMGs] • Number of applications per interview offer is increasing o In 2015, matched US seniors submitted a median 39 applications to obtain 19 interview offers (2:1) o In 2009, it took only 26 applications to obtain 17 interview offers in 2009 (1.5:1) • Many programs report using filters to screen applicants #CORDAA16 OBJECTIVE • To determine which factors applicants consider most important when selecting an EM residency program METHODS • Anonymous web-based survey • Two thousand 3rd and 4th year medical students • Students asked to select 7 program factors from a list of 16 options that they consider most important in selecting an EM residency program • Preference for geographic location, length of training, and program accreditation type were omitted as the importance of these have previously been validated RESULTS • 261 respondents (13% response rate) • 210 (80.5%) were 4th years, 51 (19.5%) were 3rd years • 67.3% of respondents were MD students, 26.5% were DO, and 6.2% were IMGs Zach Jarou, Sean Ochsenbein, Doug Franzen, Fiona Gallahue, Hilary Fairbrother, Kevin Hu, Adam Kellogg Denver Health/UColorado, Quillen @ ETSU, UWashington, NYU, Mount Sinai, Baystate/Tufts

  5. 5. Do Students Have Access to the Data They Desire When Selecting an Emergency Medicine Residency Program? #CORDAA16 • Several factors are considered by EM residency applicants, some of which (ie: USMLE scores required for consideration) are not published on program websites, possibly leading towards over application • By making certain data more transparent, students might be able to make more informed residency application decisions CONCLUSIONS LIMITATIONS • Absence of questions regarding elective time, longitudinal specialty tracks, and number of ICU /off-service rotations • Factors believed to be important by applicants may not be in agreement with what current/graduating residents or academic advisors would recommend Zach Jarou, Sean Ochsenbein, Doug Franzen, Fiona Gallahue, Hilary Fairbrother, Kevin Hu, Adam Kellogg Denver Health/UColorado, Quillen @ ETSU, UWashington, NYU, Mount Sinai, Baystate/Tufts Learn more about the next generation residency directory, a collaboration between EMRA, CORD’s SATF, and CDEM EMRA Match v4.0 | www.emra.org/match Thursday @ 1pm – Curricular Innovations Session QUESTIONS? @zachjarou | @DenverEMed
