For the second year in a row, the Washington University Orthopaedic Surgery Residency Program has been ranked as the #2 residency program in the country by US News & World Report and Doximity.

San Francisco - August 25, 2015

Doximity, the leading medical network for 60 percent of all U.S. physicians, today launched its second annual Residency Navigator, an interactive tool designed to help the next generation of doctors research and compare residency training programs nationwide. Last year, nearly 75 percent of all senior medical students used Doximity to research the programs where they would train as new physicians. The new Residency Navigator brings an unprecedented level of transparency to graduate medical education, unveiling alumni-generated reviews and ratings of each training program.

Choosing a residency program is one of the biggest decisions new physicians face in their careers. In an effort to help medical students discover programs best-suited to their personal interests and career goals, over 38,000 U.S. physicians contributed insights. The Residency Navigator tool combines their feedback with objective data on residency programs across 22 specialties, and "alumni outcomes" analysis of the curriculum vitae (CVs) and career paths of over 700,000 U.S. physicians.

The full list of the Top 10 Orthopedic placements is available to the public through the Residency Navigator.
