    On the AOA residency page:
    Program X
    Approved: 6
    Funded: 6
    Filled: 6

    Does this mean 6 pgy-1, 6 pgy-2..ect. or 6 in the whole program for all years combined?

    Kinda hard to decifer....

    6 means all year combined. For example, in a three year residency, that program takes 2 per year.

    What does it mean when the program is approved but not funded?

    Thanks

    Pretty much exactly what is says. The program is approved for so many spots by the AOA. However, some hospitals can't fund every approved position.
    This leads to many programs with more approved than funded positions.

    Thanks for replying pags. I have seen some programs with multiple approved spots and no funding. Do the residents that select to train at these programs not get paid? Tough to survive on nothing. I guess this is obvious, but I thought there might be more to it than that. That sucks.

    Yes, believe it or not, there are some residents that will work for free. However, at these programs with no funding, there usually is a level of income that is lower than the national average for residents.
