N1 - Funding Information: To objectively quantify the scholarly output of the 2 groups, we examined peer-reviewed articles published between July of each resident's match year and the end of the expected graduation calendar year. Publications were identified using Ovid MEDLINE. We initially searched by author last name, first initial, and middle initial (when available), as provided in the application files. The resulting list of references was then searched manually for full name matches. For references without a listed full first name or where multiple authors were listed under the same name, the institution field was examined for past medical school (from the Electronic Residency Application Service record) or matched residency program (from the National Resident Match Program data). From the list of references attributable to each applicant, we excluded non-journal articles and any publications dated before July 1 of their match year. For each applicant, we recorded the total number of peer-reviewed articles, the number of case reports, the number of first-author publications, and the name of the journal in which each article appeared. Cases and controls were compared on several outcomes, including the number of peer-reviewed articles per applicant, the proportion of applicants with at least 1 publication, and the 2009 journal impact factor of publications. = 0.05. This study was approved by the Mayo Clinic Institutional Review Board and was not supported by any funding source. 16 Statistical analyses were conducted using SAS version 9.1 (SAS Institute Inc, Cary, NC). The proportions with at least 1 publication were compared using Fisher exact tests. Ordinal outcomes such as number of articles and impact factor were compared using Wilcoxon rank-sum tests. Multivariable analyses of publication counts during residency were performed using logistic and Poisson regression for dichotomous and count data, respectively. Two-tailed statistical significance was set at α
