OBGYN Specialty

Alignment Check Index

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. The Alignment Check Index (ACI) creates an alignment index that applicants can use in helping them determine with which programs they are the most aligned.
  • Access ACI by signing in or creating a free AMA account.
  • Program directors will not see your ACI results. Signing in allows the OB/GYN community to evaluate the ACI tool.

How it Works

Tell Us About Your Experience

Well ask you a few questions around your academic and life experience to help you find programs that may align with what a program is looking for in an applicant.

See Your Results

Based on your answers, we will calculate an alignment score that lines up with program priorities. Please note that this alignment score is only taking the factors you were asked questions about into account, and will not represent all factors you care about, or a program takes into account. Use your results as a guide only.
