    IMG 2011 Match Stats from ECFMG Reporter

    Advertisements



    For those who aren't already subscribed to the ECFMG Reporter:


    For the ninth consecutive year, the number of first-year (PGY-1) residency positions offered through the Match increased. A total of 23,421 first-year positions were offered in the 2011 Match, held earlier this month. This represents an increase of 612 positions compared to last year and an increase of more than 2,800 positions since 2002.

    The number of IMGs, including Fifth Pathway participants, who matched to first-year positions decreased by 60 compared to 2010. Of the 10,477 IMGs who participated in the 2011 Match, 4,626 (44.2%) matched. In the 2010 Match, 4,686 (42.4%) IMGs were matched to first-year positions.

    Of the 6,659 IMG participants who were not U.S. citizens, 2,721 (40.9%) obtained first-year positions. The number of non-U.S. citizen IMGs who obtained positions in 2011 decreased by 160 compared to last year.

    Of the 3,769 U.S. citizen IMG participants, 1,884 (50.0%) were matched to first-year positions, an increase of 135 over last year. This is the eighth consecutive year that there has been an increase in the number of U.S. citizen IMGs matching to first-year positions.

    Of the 49 Fifth Pathway participants in the Match, 21 (42.9%) were matched to first-year positions.

    It is important to note that the total number of IMGs who will fill PGY-1 positions for the 2011-2012 academic year will be higher than the number obtaining positions through the 2011 Match. Although the majority of PGY-1 positions in the United States are filled through the Match, a significant number of IMG applicants obtain positions outside of the Match. For example, while 4,796 IMGs obtained PGY-1 positions through the 2009 Match, 7,335 IMGs entered PGY-1 for the 2009-2010 academic year.

    The 7,335 IMGs entering PGY-1 for the 2009-2010 academic year is an increase of 59 over the prior year and an increase of 1,262 since the 2002-2003 academic year.

    interesting stats, basically you have a 50/50 chance w/out stats or anything matching being a US citizen IMG. Add in some good board scores, good LORs, strong clinical grades and interviews, I could see that number bumping over 75%. You do also have to be realistic about where and what you apply to.

    So what happens to the other 50%? Just wait around and re-apply? Can anything be done at that point to improve your chances next time around?

    whatever you do don't take time off, do research, maybe get a job in a hospital you want to apply to (so they get to know you a bit) something. teach at your school if possible as jr faculty. Etc etc.

    How did people match this year at AUC? How many people from each class make it to 4th year? Are there requirements to pass USMLE Step 1 before continuing in the 3rd year? Also, how many 4th years were not eligible to enter the match this year?

    The only question I can answer accurately is that yes there is a requirement to pass the step before continuing to 3rd year.
