I am compiling, for eventual web-posting, a database of general surgery residencies. The ideas is to take pertinent information from FREIDA, the ACGME website and the ACS website and put it in a customizable/sortable Excel spreadsheet. I am planning to include the following fields in the database. Program Name Location Zip Code Number of slots Web site History of unfilled categorical slots ACGME program # (useful for quickly accessing the FREIDA stats) * Required research year(s) * Available research year(s) * Time spent on out-of-town rotations Two questions 1) What other information would be useful 2) How useful would the starred fields be? They would require a lot of work to get good data.
