This report summarizes the results of the Survey of Residents Completing Training in New York in 2021 (2021 Exit Survey) conducted by the Center for Health Workforce Studies (CHWS) in the spring and summer of 2021. This survey, administered annually with the cooperation and assistance of residency program directors and hospitals’ graduate medical education (GME) administrators across the state, consists of questions covering the following general topical areas: residents’ demographic and background characteristics, residents’ post-graduation plans, characteristics of post-graduation employment (for residents with confirmed practice plans), residents’ experiences in searching for a job, and their impressions of the physician job market (for residents who had searched for a job).
The primary goal of the Exit Survey is to assist the medical education community in New York in its efforts to train physicians consistent with the needs of the state and the nation.
