发信站: BBS 未名空间站 (Thu Mar 19 18:35:18 2009)
The following data and Analysis may help 2010 applicants.
This year, 376 programs offered 4,992 internal medicine categorical
positions in the match, representing a slight increase in the number of
programs and positions from 2008. Only 25 programs (7%) went unfilled,
compared with 31 last year.
This year, the fill rate for US seniors was 53.8% with 2,632 US seniors
matched to categorical internal medicine programs. These numbers have
remained stable for the past five years.
Overall, interest in primary care residencies has remained flat. All but
two of the 50 primary care internal medicine residencies were filled, but
the number of positions offered was down from 264 to 247. US seniors filled
155 (63%) of these positions. For historical perspective, in 1997 608
primary care internal medicine positions were in the match, and 368 US
seniors matched. Although only 12 internal medicine-pediatrics (med-peds)
programs out of 79 went unfilled compared with 17 last year, the US senior
fill rate was unchanged at 68%. The number of med-peds positions offered (
354) was down very slightly from last year; however, to put things in
perspective, there were 464 med-peds positions in the match in 1997. In
family medicine, the number of positions offered was down from 2,636 to 2,
535, and the fill rate for family medicine for US seniors was 42%, a small
decrease. Comparatively speaking, pediatrics had a good year. Only 29
pediatrics programs went unfilled compared with 40 last year, and the fill
rate for US seniors was up from 67% to 70%.
The total number of students from US allopathic medical schools in the match
continues to increase slightly each year; there were 16,008 students this
year, up from 15,308 in 2005.
