  6. 6. September 12, 2014 Nate Gross, MD Doximity 60 E 3rd Ave #115 San Mateo, CA 94401 Dear Dr. Gross: As leaders of the top organizations representing emergency medicine, we have been contacted by scores of emergency physicians from around the country about a survey being conducted by Doximity and publicized by U.S. News & World Report. We appreciate your recognition of emergency medicine as an academic medical specialty with a unique core of knowledge and robust research agenda. However, we are concerned about the sampling method chosen for this survey, because we believe it will fail to achieve your objective for this survey — to identify America’s top emergency medicine training programs. Asking only physicians enrolled in a social media website to nominate their five most preferred residencies will result in egregious sample bias and is not capable of resulting in a scientifically valid result. The results will be based solely upon opinions expressed by physicians who have no first- hand knowledge of any residency training programs other than the ones they attended themselves.

As mentors and counselors for students applying to residency, we appreciate the appeal of such a list – it implies a measure of how “competitive” a residency program might be. Unfortunately, nothing could be further from the truth. Last year, the list was generated from a survey. The population surveyed included only those physicians registered on Doximity, and asked them to rank their “top 5” residency programs. Unlike other U.S. News & World Report rank lists, no objective criteria were used and indeed, no such criteria currently exist. In this era of crowdsourced opinions, you might think that a survey is a valid way to create a rank list. However, the vast majority of practicing emergency physicians has intimate knowledge of only one residency program and no basis for comparing other programs. The small percentage of those in academics might have detailed knowledge of one or two more. Thus, the 2014 survey results really reflected a ranking of the programs with the most alumni who were members of Doximity and were willing to vote in the survey.
