Characteristics of Applicants Who Matched to Their Preferred Specialty in the 2009 NRMP Main Residency Match
The NRMP and the AAMC are pleased to announce the 3rd edition of “Charting Outcomes in the Match.”
This report is a joint research effort by the NRMP and the AAMC in response to requests from students and their advisors for data on how applicant qualifications affect match success.
Based on the results of the 2009 Main Residency Match, the 3rd edition of this publication includes data for one additional specialty (Neurological Surgery) and two new measures (number of work and number of volunteer experiences). In addition, for each specialty there are two graphs showing the relationship between the number of contiguous programs ranked and USMLE Step 1 scores and the probability of matching in the preferred specialty. Data are displayed separately for U.S. allopathic seniors and for all other applicants, where all others includes international medical students and graduates, osteopathic medical students and graduates, Canadian medical students and graduates, and participants in the fifth pathway program.
