    Why Residency Match Rate is so High?

    Can someone please help to explain why match rate for this school is so high? Almost 60 students matched for residency in 2013 as per their web site:

    eustatiusmed [dot] edu [forward slash] residency-placements [forward slash] residency-placements-2013 [forward slash]

    Is it true? I'm seriously considering applying to this school based on the above information. Please provide any assistance that will help me with my decision.

    There's nothing really great about the school's match list. Nothing spectacular stands out. Look at SGU's match list and compare it with this school, lol. As Axiom stated, the list isn't a representation of grads. I personally know a few people that went to this school who are going to be reapplying for residency their third and fourth time. Granted, they each did poorly on Step 1 and CK with below average scores.

    One quick google shows that this person graduated in 2007, did a family medicine residency and is now some sort of instructor at RWJ.

    I guess that answers your question....

    Hi, I am Sairah Khokher, MD. I am a graduate of St. Eustatius (AUIS). I initially did Family Medicine residency then became a clinical instructor with RWJ (now Rutgers) for three years. Eventually, I was accepted to Dermatology residency program which i just finished this June. In terms of the quality of St. Eustatius (AUIS), I have 4 family members that also graduated from this school: 1 is family medicine/urgent care, 1 is family medicine/sports medicine, 1 is internal medicine/nephrology, and the last one is internal medicine/pulmonary/critical care/sleep medicine. The "secret" to the school's success is simple: small size, dedicated/caring professors, and great alumni network.
