We agree with Dr. Baral that present and prospective residents are important stakeholders in the reform of graduate medical training in internal medicine. Although we do not believe that every resident in every program should be surveyed every year, we do agree that such information would be useful to programs and trainees alike. The Residency Review Committee for Internal Medicine surveys residents during its periodic program reviews; perhaps the information from these surveys should be made generally available. Moreover, we believe that the internal medicine residency market would benefit from freer information about individual programs' pass rates for the American Board of Internal Medicine certifying examination.
