Thank you for your insight! That makes sense.
Not everyone wants to be a surgeon, many of those who do prior to matriculating change their mind, including those at the top of their class. Also, while IM is generally easier to match into than say ortho, getting MGH for IM is prob just as hard as matching HSS for ortho. You also can't just look at the # matching into X speciality without looking at the class size. Ex- Case's match is/always impressive but they also have a massive class. Their 2018 entering class was 214 students.

I got this from their match list search for 2019. I don't know where @ThatOneAnon found that list but it is 100x better organized than the one they put out that is organized by name on their website. I think all they are missing is ortho.

I know at Harvard and at UCSF, medical students can choose not to be included in the match list publication. I’m assuming other medical schools give their students this option as well. I would consider that factor when evaluating match lists as well...

For UCSF, I think you’re still included in the generic “how many matched each specialty” list they release, but will be removed from the hard-copy list that has names/programs. I was confused about why a certain specialty’s numbers didn’t add up between the two until I remembered it was optional. Lists that don’t list people by name are probably less likely to do this in general, I’d imagine.

Evaluating match lists as premeds is still a pointless endeavor, though, for reasons pointed out already.

Super random, but is University of Washington a top tier/prestigious program?
Yes, definitely. But also a strongly mission-based school so unless you share the school’s mission the match list will probably not mean much to you. On the MSTP side their grads match as well as any other T20 program.

Michigan match list is missing Urology matches too.
How the mighty have fallen
No dude. There is a Tulane and Kaiser Urology match missing from that list. That is not the full Umich match list.
Corrected.

Also missing an ortho to St. Mary’s
This is missing an IR to MGH.
Harvard is also missing a second OB/Gyn match to Brigham & Womens.

What does “prelim” mean?
It's basically an "intern" year. It's a one year program where you train in either general medicine or surgery. There are a few circumstances in which you would do this:
1) Some specialties, such as ophtho, radiology, PM&R, etc. require you to do an intern year before going into your specialty training in your second year of residency. Some programs are called "categorical" and have that intern year built into the program. Others are "advanced" and will require you to find your own intern year position at the same hospital or elsewhere prior to starting your specialty training with their program. If someone does a prelim year (or a transitional year, which is similar) AND has a PGY-2 position they matched to as well, that is good/normal.
2) You failed to match into your desired specialty, whether that's because (a) you didn't get an advanced position you wanted, (b) applied to your desired specialty + prelim years as a backup and didn't get your desired specialty, or (c) you didn't match in your desired specialty and had to SOAP/scramble into an open prelim spot. These people will have to reapply to residencies during their prelim year. Doing only a prelim year will get you licensed to practice medicine, but you would not be board certified in any specialty. If someone ONLY has a prelim year with no PGY-2 placement, that is bad/not normal.

This is true for the majority of states, but definitely not all. One year of GME is required for U.S. MD's in 36 of 52 jurisdictions (including DC & PR); however, 13 states require two years GME, 2 states require 3 years GME and one state (SD) requires completion of a residency program. For DO's it's a little better as for some reason ME, PA and WA believe "bone wizards" only require one year of GME while MD's require two years! It should also be noted that many states require extra years for IMG's.

As a DO student, I have never heard of the “bone wizard joke.” I think this is a hilarious and it put a smile on my face. Thank you! Instead of a DO, it will be a BW from now on.

Super random, but is University of Washington a top tier/prestigious program?
Depends on the specialty. In ophthalmology, it’s not considered top by any means. It’s probably mid-tier but def solid improvements in the last 3-4 years. In other specialties like IM, peds, ortho, etc. UW is generally considered a top 10 program.

Anyone have Duke?
@MC_Infarction Could you please share Duke’s match list when you get a chance? Asking for a prospective student (my baby cousin)!
Below is Duke's list. A quick opinion that I wanted to share - I think a match list is one of the poorer proxies for how you choose a med school. So many things go into how people rank programs other than just sheer reputation/ranking.

This is true for the majority of states, but definitely not all. One year of GME is required for U.S. MD's in 36 of 52 jurisdictions (including DC & PR); however, 13 states require two years GME, 2 states require 3 years GME and one state (SD) requires completion of a residency program. For DO's it's a little better as for some reason ME, PA and WA believe "bone wizards" only require one year of GME while MD's require two years! It should also be noted that many states require extra years for IMG's.
Hahahaha guess it pays to go DO ;);););)

Does anyone with more experience have any insight on the Sinai match list? How good it is, is it what you would expect?
How can anyone expect anything from any match list? The match process is very individualized, and there's nothing to get out of it except maybe possible connections to some programs you might be interested in. Different classes = Different people = Different interests = Different match list every year.

I can comment overall that medicine is quite good but not totally star studded (see: Stanford). All 4 Neurology matches are very strong. Peds is overall quite strong as well.

Huge grain of salt, self-selection and personal fit (however that may be defined by any individual person) play an enormous part in this process, so again, interpreting a single match list is like trying to read tea leaves.
