List of Unfilled Residency Vacancies and Swap Positions

Off-cycle residency openings are usually due to residents resigning, changing specialties, being terminated, incoming residents not starting because of visa or medical issues, program expansions, new programs coming into existence, or programs not filling their spots. These vacancies occur throughout the year. In addition to helping you find vacancies, Resident Swap can find other residents who might be interested in switching places with you; i.e "swap." You have to have a residency position to participate in a swap.

For each PGY level, the number of programs with unfilled vacancies is listed in the first column, and the number of swap positions is listed in the second column.

What is a Residency Opening?

A residency opening is an unfilled vacancy in a hospital, where the residency program does not have enough residents. This can be an off-cycle opening, immediate opening, or starting at a future date, such as July 1, 2021, or July 1, 2021. The above list generally does not contain the expected on-cycle openings that typically start in July every year, as these are generally known and can be found elsewhere.

Off-cycle residency opening is a vacancy that begins during an unusual month, other than July.

What is a Residency Swap ® Post?

A residency swap position is a post made by a resident who would like to switch location or specialty with another resident. You have to have a residency position to participate in a swap, but you do not need to be in residency to apply for an open position.
