    Hello everyone!

    This year’s Residency Match Day set records for number of US and international medical school students and graduates (35,969) and positions to be filled (31,757). Specialties with at least 30 positions to fill that were the most competitive, as measured by the percentage of positions filled by US allopathic seniors, were plastic surgery (93.1%), orthopedic surgery (91.9%) and otolaryngology (91.5%).

    A key statistic we want prospective medical school students to closely examine is the PGY-1 match rate. For MD seniors, it was 94.3%, a statistic that has held steady for the past several years. For DO seniors, it was 81.7%, a slight increase from last year. For US citizens who graduated from international medical schools, the match rate climbed to 54.8%, the highest rate since 2004.

    Best of luck with your applications!
