Since 1997, the AAP Annual Survey of Graduating Residents has monitored residents' training and job search experiences.

  • A random sample of third-year pediatrics residents is surveyed as they complete training each year.
  • The core survey asks residents about their training experiences, career intentions, and job search experiences.
  • A new topic, such as experience treating gun injuries and views on approaches to reduce gun injury, is also explored each year.

The AAP appreciates the many residents who have responded to the Annual Survey of Graduating Residents.
