Residency Programs List is an important step to residency

How do I get a medical residency in the USA? - This is a common question not only for foreign graduates but for many American students. Every year, programs receive anywhere from a few hundred to thousands of applications. While this number varies by specialty, even less competitive programs need to develop minimum initial filtering requirements in order to process such a huge number of applications. As result, USMLE scores, first attempt passage, clinical experience in the United States, and time since graduation are very important for a successful application to a particular program. Additionally, the program can prefer exclusively U.S. MDs, DOs, IMGs or just U.S. IMGs, Caribbean graduates, etc. This is why it is very important to choose the right programs to apply to when submitting documents via Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS). There are a lot of U.S. medical residency program databases on the internet.
AMA's FREIDA medical residencies list provides information about minimum USMLE requirements, program work schedule, features, benefits, contacts and additional information self-reported by programs. FREIDA shows locations of participating institutions, filters programs by specialty, program type, location, first-year salary, visa, percentage IMGs, total positions, etc. Therefore, FREIDA is a convenient source of information for U.S. medical graduates and an important source of basic information for IMGs.
AAMC Residency Explorer provides statistics about the number of applications, scores, sex, race, medical schools and other characteristics of matched candidates collected during the past several years for many programs. As an important feature for IMGs, this tool shows percentages of US and non-US international medical graduates matched into the program. Residency Explorer also compares your profile with profiles of matched candidates and provides basic search, bookmarking, and export features.

So, what is the difference between ResidencyProgramsList and the others? First of all, ResidencyProgramsList is targeted at providing information about soft and hard USMLE cut-off scores, characterization of current residents, previous match statistics, required months of U.S. clinical experience, hands-on USCE requirements, time since graduation preferences, first attempt passing, additional program-specific requirements for U.S. graduates and IMGs. The second direction is collecting information about not well-known programs that accepted IMGs and new programs that are willing to accept IMGs. The third is ranking programs by probability to be inclined towards a certain IMG candidate. All of these together makes ResidencyProgramsList an important tool for finding the right medical residency programs in the USA.
