Doximity’s Residency Navigator is a tool that assists medical students with making informed residency-related decisions. It also offers transparency to applicants throughout the residency match process. Its system is based upon compiling current resident and recent alumni satisfaction rates, as well as reputation data and objective data.

Satisfaction data is derived from satisfaction survey responses from each residency’s current residents and recent graduates, while reputation data is derived from nomination survey responses. This portion is limited to board-certified physicians in that specialty and is alumni weighted. Objective data is compiled from a variety of public sources, including the Doximity database, which covers all U.S. physicians.

Doximity is the largest online professional network for physicians in the U.S. Its comprehensive physician database includes every physician in the country as identified by their National Provider Identifier number.
