Increasing Trainee Survey Responses: Best Practice Methods for Obtaining High Response Rates from Trainees

NOTE (1-31-2020): Since this resource was published, trainee surveys have been revised to a 2, 5, and 10 year timeline. The tips provided here are otherwise still pertinent. Obtaining high trainee response rates to the LEND and UCEDD 1, 5, and 10 year surveys can be difficult for programs to get. To assist Centers in potentially increasing their response rates, AUCD interviewed training directors and former trainees from the 5 UCEDDs and/or LENDs with the consistently highest response rates to understand their strategies for surveying former trainees. This report describes AUCD's interviews and the practices these Centers have found to be successful.
