The National GME Census

The American Medical Association (AMA) and the Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC) jointly conduct the National GME Census. The primary data collection mechanism for the census is through the AAMC's GME Track, a secure web-based application that, among other services, includes the Program Survey and Resident Survey modules. The information on FREIDA Online comes primarily from the Program Survey.

In May 2015, GME program directors and institutional sponsors received an email with details and dates of the National GME Census. The Program Survey portion became available for update on May 20, 2015. Programs that completed and approved their Program Survey on or before July 10 had their program information uploaded to FREIDA Online in August. A second FREIDA Online update occurred in October for those who completed their survey by Sept. 30. A final upload for the 2016 version of FREIDA Online took place in February 2016. Programs can make edits to their program information throughout the year.

For questions about GME Track, phone (202) 862-6171 or email [email protected]. For questions regarding the National GME Census, call the Census Support Hotline at (800) 866-6793, or email [email protected].

Post an Open Position

The AMA Resident and Fellow Section maintains a list of vacant positions, which could include unfilled positions after "The Match" or positions that become vacant throughout the year. These positions are separate from those listed in FREIDA Online. Post an open residency or fellowship position.
