Geographical Recruitment Outcomes

Cerebellum Geographic section maps applicant density for the program and within the specialty. 


Colored dots represent the program's applicant counts within each category. Initial displayed values are based on applicants invited to interview at the program by current address.

Specialty wide density is displayed with yellow-orange shading representing the percentage of total applicants that have applied to the specialty that are located within each state by current address.

The map can be zoomed out to see a global view of your applicant data or zoomed in for a localized view of your applicant data. While shading is only present for US-based applicants, the analysis includes all international applicants plotted by current address, permanent address and location of medical school/training program.


The program applicant location information can be viewed by:

  • Current Address
  • Permanent Address
  • Location of Medical School / Training program 

The specialty wide application density is displayed by applicant's current address. 


How the data is aggregated:

Current address, permanent address and medical school are calculated from Thalamus/Cortex data from the program. If the program is using Cortex, this data is included automatically. If using Thalamus only, visit these guides for information on uploading applicant Medical School and Current Address into Thalamus: Uploading Applicants into Thalamus from ERAS or Uploading Applicants into Thalamus NON ERAS. 

Applicant density is calculated automatically from specialty-wide data from programs using Thalamus.


Visit our guides Navigating Cerebellum for information on applying Filters and Exporting data in Cerebellum and Optimizing Cerebellum Data for information on optimizing data aggregation within Thalamus, Cortex and Cerebellum.
