Data in Brief: Internal Medicine Resident to Faculty Ratios and Salary Support

This month’s Data in Brief illustrates residency program size as a ratio of resident to Associate Program Directors (APDs) and Core Faculty. Although the ratio of resident positions to APDs is consistent by program type, university-based programs have more approved positions per core faculty and core faculty FTE salary support than other program types.

The full data sets can be found at the "Source" links, below.
