Residency Expense Report

This application uses data collected in Spring 2015, 2016, 2017, 2018, and 2020 regarding expenses incurred by VUSM 4th year students in the process leading up to the 2015 through 2018 and 2020 Matches, respectively. The intent of this application is to allow current medical students to view expense data from previous years so that they may better anticipate the costs associated with ERAS applications, interviews, travel, etc. and plan their finances accordingly.

Calculation of Statistics

Interview Expenses

Expenses classified as 'Lodging,', 'Food,' 'Travel (air),' 'Travel (car)', Travel (public),' 'Clothing,' and 'Other (Interviews)' refer to expenses incurred while on interviews.

Away Rotations

Cost per rotation is calculated using only the data from students who reported at least one away rotation, and therefore has a smaller sample size (N). To calculate this statistic, all reported expenses associated with away rotations are summed and divided by the number of away rotations reported.
