Of those surveyed, 89% responded.
We compared these findings with those from a similar 1996 survey.
The test of statistical significance wasp <=.05.
All diagnostic residency and fellowship graduates who wanted to work were employed within 6 months after graduation.
Approximately 95% of graduates had positions that directors believed to reasonably match their training and personal employment goals.

The completed plus planned changes in program size will lead to a 13-14% reduction in the annual number of graduates.
As in previous years, by late April to mid May 1997,93% of beginning-year residency slots were filled.
However, the percentage of beginning residents who are international medical graduates increased. (...)
