In this paper, the author describes the results of tracking a cohort of medical school graduates through the graduate medical education system of Ontario, Canada. The cohort consisted of the 1977 graduates of the five Ontario medical schools who entered the graduate system at some point between 1977 and 1982 and graduate trainees who had graduated in 1977 from medical schools outside Ontario. The objectives of the study were to determine what proportion of the total number of 1977 Ontario medical graduates received graduate training in Ontario; to document the flow of the trainees into and out of the Ontario graduate system; and to compare the graduate training patterns of the Ontario graduates in the cohort with the trainees from elsewhere.
