2008 MATCH PERFORMANCE -- NUMBER OF IMGS MATCHING INCREASES
For the sixth consecutive year, the number of first-year (PGY-1) residency
positions offered through the Match increased. A total of 22,240 first-year
positions were offered in the 2008 Match, held earlier this month. This
represents an increase of 395 positions compared to last year and an
increase of 1,638 positions since 2002.
The number of IMGs who matched to first-year positions increased by 122
compared to 2007. Of the 10,304 IMGs who participated in the 2008 Match,
4,649* (45.1%) matched. In the 2007 Match, 4,527 (46.7%) IMG participants
were matched to first-year positions.
There was a decrease in the number of matches for non-U.S. citizen IMGs and
an increase in the number of matches for U.S. citizen IMGs.
Of the 7,335 IMG participants who were not U.S. citizens, 3,108 (42.4%)
obtained first-year positions. The number of non-U.S. citizen IMGs who
obtained positions in 2008 decreased by 72 compared to last year. This is
the first year that there has been a decrease in the number of non-U.S.
citizen IMGs matching to first-year positions since 2001.
Of the 2,969 U.S. citizen IMG participants, 1,541 (51.9%) were matched to
first-year positions, an increase of 194 over last year. This is the fifth
consecutive year that there has been an increase in the number of U.S.
citizen IMGs matching to first-year positions.
*Note: The total number of IMGs who will fill PGY-1 positions for the
2008-2009 academic year will be higher than this number, since a significant
number of IMGs obtain PGY-1 positions outside of the Match.
About the Match
The annual NRMP Match is the system by which applicants are matched with
available residency positions in U.S. programs of graduate medical education
(GME). Participants submit to the NRMP a list of residency programs, in
order of preference. Ranked lists of preferred residency candidates are
likewise submitted by U.S. GME programs with available positions. The
matching of applicants to available positions is performed by computer
algorithm. The Match results announced in March of each year are typically
for GME programs beginning the following July.
Additional Resources on the Match and Match Results
The preceding data are taken from the Advance Data Tables for the 2008 Main
Residency Match compiled by the NRMP. These tables provide detailed
information on the positions offered and filled by the Match in 2008 and
prior years. To access these tables, or to obtain further information on the
NRMP, visit www.nrmp.org.
The June issue of Academic Medicine, the journal of the Association of
American Medical Colleges, usually offers an analysis of Match results from
the preceding March. For more information, visit your medical school\'s
library or www.academicmedicine.org.
The September issue of JAMA: The Journal of the American Medical Association
traditionally provides an in-depth analysis of graduate medical education
in the United States. This analysis includes the number of IMGs entering and
continuing in U.S. GME programs and a breakdown of IMG resident physicians
by specialty and subspecialty.
