To characterize the role of emergency medicine residency programs in determining emergency medicine career choice among medical students.

Information on student career choice was obtained through a targeted query of the National Resident Matching Program data base, simultaneously stratified by specialty and school, and adjusted for class size.
All accredited emergency medicine residency programs and four-year allopathic medical schools.
Fifty-two schools (42%) had a closely affiliated emergency medicine residency program, ie, one based primarily at the institution's main teaching hospital(s).
