2021 Survey of Final-year Medical Residents

May 10, 2021

Physicians completing their training are getting fewer recruiting offers than in the past, most likely due to Covid-19, a new survey suggests. The survey also indicates that female physicians coming out of training receive more recruiting offers than male physicians, but expect to earn less in their first practice. 

Conducted periodically since 1991 by Merritt Hawkins, a national physician search firm and a company of AMN Healthcare, the survey examines the career choices, plans, and expectations of physicians in their final year of residency training.
