The Alignment Check Index for the OBGYN specialty allows residency applicants to compare their experiences and characteristics to the domains that residency programs consider in their own assessment of their program’s values and interests. Programs have weighted their emphasis on 6 domains, summing to 100%: Academic Metrics, Work Experience, Community Service/Advocacy, Research Experience, Teaching Experience, and Background and Lived Experiences. Applicants evaluate their own experiences in these same domains. The Alignment Check Index (ACI) creates an alignment index that applicants can use in helping them determine with which programs they have the most alignment.
