    I'm not going to match - what steps should I be taking?

    Was under-qualified, applied to general surgery. Didn't apply to any "back-ups" because it was my life and I was sure I would do anything to be a surgeon. Fast-forward a few months and surgery lost it's luster in December (after doing a few aways) but by then it was too late to apply to other...

    Anesthesia SOAP advanced vs wait for physician only (R) Spot

    Hi all, Recently I found out that I did not match into ophthalmology. I am now looking towards anesthesiology. This isn't the worst thing ever, as I was having some regrets about ophthalmology even during the interview process. I have taken the anesthesiology rotation and have given anesthesia...

    Feeling bummed on matching bottom tier TRI

    Congrats on all those who matched, and my deepest apologies to those who didn't. I know how dreadful not matching can be and maybe it's a bit insensitive for me to post this. I went for PM&R this year as a DO with COMLEX only, no red flags. I interviewed at some middle to high tier programs. I...

    Unmatched DO Applicant

    So I got the bad news today. Didn't match Ortho in the Osteopathic match. Thought about doing EM and applied to it, but decided way late that I'd rather scramble than commit to a life of ER medicine. So I am stuck in a seriously bad place. Still haven't accepted any DO positions such as TRI's...

    More than 8,000 doctor graduates for each of the last 5 years have not matched into a post-graduate residency position. This "fall-out" compounds each successive year and the deficit continues to grow. Without post-graduate training these unlicensed doctors cannot work in Medicine. They are...
