The number of residents beginning training in internal medicine continued to increase slightly in 1985-86. However, the total number of residents in internal residency training decreased slightly from the previous year due to a decrease in the number of second- and third-year residents. The proportion of first-year residents who were foreign-trained physicians decreased from 21% to 20%, and the proportion of residents who finished training and went on to subspecialty training in 1985 decreased substantially to 56%. The number of physicians entering residency and fellowship training in internal medicine considerably exceeds the number projected by the Graduate Medical Education National Advisory Committee. In this article, we discuss implications of these trends for medical education and practice.
