As a major center for GME in the U.S., the state of New York provides a useful window into the experiences of newly-trained physicians. Although only 7% of the U.S. population resided in New York in 1999, nearly 15% of all allopathic residents and 29% of all IMG residents trained in New York that year. A survey of residents completing training in New York therefore provided a meaningful perspective on the practice patterns and job market experiences of IMGs and USMGs.
