The selection of emergency medicine residents requires review of medical school performance and, usually, an interview in which applicants and program directors exchange important information. Computer technology is available to assist programs in the analysis of information about applicants. Ethnic diversity and minority recruitment should also be considered as 40% of all emergency medicine residencies have no minority residents. Suggestions for developing a valid, humane, and fair selection process are made.
