Not so good for US match hopefuls. a 76% match rate.
OK Dr Bill how did you come up with 76%?
Unlike the NRMP I count all applicants who applied in September and the end match number.
Why? Because the real competition you have to worry about is how many applications flood the programs looking for interviews.
NRMP does not count
Withdraws, people withdraw more than likely because of no interviews
No Ranking, people do not rank more than likely because of no interviews
I count them
Also the match rate is US seniors who are in the match first time, US AMG reapplicants, US DO applicants and FMG US citizens are not counted in the "US Match rate"
There were more more US applicants than offered Positions this year
I COUNT ALL US PHYSICIANS AS IT SHOULD BE
My data source
AMG MD Seniors 19030 Matched 18539
AMG MD Reapplicant 1819 Matched 677
AMG DO 5000 Matched 2933
FMG US 7149 Matched 2777
total 32998 Matched 24926
All PGY1 positions offered 28849
PGY1 28849- US (AMG MD & DO, FMG ) Matched 24926 = 3923 out of this 3814 Non US IMG matched leaving 109 positions
US total applied 32998- US matched 24926= 8072 unmatched
Worse using 24926 US matched and 32998 US applied in September = 76% match rate
Good luck next year
