    Resident [Any Field]
    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. :)

    those research requirements would be hard to keep track of b/c many of them are fluid. A number of places have eliminated them b/c its expensive & not attractive to some candidates. At others it may or may not be optional depending upon manpower needs. I'm not sure that the unfilled position # really tells you much either about programs either (see Univ. of Virginia this past year).
