Computer facilitation of the resident selection process

Academic Article


  • A personal computer software system has-been designed and implemented to facilitate the numerous complex tasks involved in the resident selection process. The computer tracks the status of each candidate, monitors each application for incomplete documentation, generates personalized correspondence, computes and maintains a scoring system based on evaluation by each Resident Selection Committee member, and provides various data printouts (eg, list of candidates by medical school; persons granted an interview; and ranking lists). Developed with the intent to share with the academic community, the system improves organization and accuracy, and notably decreases time spent by administrative assistants and staff members in the resident selection process. © Lippincott-Raven Publishers.
