During a down-sizing of residency programs at a State University Medical School, hospital based residents'positions were eliminated.
It was determined to find out the characteristics of the residents who graduated from the Laboratory Medicine Program, to compare women graduates with men graduates, and to compare IMGs with United States Graduates.
An assessment of a 25 year program in laboratory medicine which had graduated 100 residents showed that there was no statistically significant difference by X2 analysis in positions (laboratory directors or staff), in certification (American Board of Pathology [and subspecialties], American Board of Medical Microbiology, American Board of Clinical Chemistry) nor in academic appointments (assistant professor to full professor) when the male graduates were compared with the female graduates or when graduates of American medical schools were compared with graduates of foreign medical schools.
There were statistically significant associations by X2 analysis between directorship positions and board certification and between academic appointments and board certification.
Of 100 graduates, there were 57 directors, 52 certified, and 41 with academic appointments.
Twenty-two graduates (11 women and 11 men) attained all three.
