“Where are all the residency programs?”
This is a question we get asked very often, and each year, particularly in the spring season. The answer can be a bit difficult and it changes each time the question is asked. Some programs hire every year. Some hire every other year. Some programs may have been active in a particular year, but then are put on hold during subsequent years for a variety of reasons.
The quick answer is the number of programs, and their vacancies, will vary from year to year and, unfortunately, there isn’t any way to predict whether a program will recruit for a class of residents ahead of time. Contacting each known program directly may or may not help since some programs are unsure whether they will be hiring in a particular year.
