SAN FRANCISCO, Calif., August 26, 2021 — Doximity, Inc. (NYSE: DOCS), the leading digital platform for medical professionals, today announced the release of its 2021-2022 Residency Navigator tool. Over 90% of graduating U.S. medical students join Doximity to use tools including Residency Navigator before earning their medical degree. Residency Navigator Is the most comprehensive online directory of American residency programs, and includes nominations, ratings and individual reviews from over 100,000 Doximity physician members.
This year’s Residency Navigator, which includes insights on over 4,900 residency programs across 28 different specialties, goes a step further in helping medical students stay connected to their significant others with the launch of the Couples Match Tool. It’s not uncommon for people to meet their life partners in medical school and this new feature enables couples to find residency programs that are geographically close together, more quickly and easily.
“According to the National Resident Matching Program (NRMP), the number of medical students annually applying for the ‘Couples Match’ has risen 55% since 2009. Matching into residency is a daunting time for most medical students. Adding the complexity of incorporating a partner into the process can feel overwhelming,” said Peter Alperin, MD, Vice President of Product at Doximity. “Doximity’s Couples Match Tool helps simplify this process, automatically generating all possible combinations of programs from different specialties within a given range of distance.”
