What should we look for when comparing match lists?

I do not know that it is possible to infer much of value from match lists, beyond: 1) every program has at least some of their students go to the big-name residency programs (CHOP, BWH, UCSF, HSS, etc.); 2)individuals go into a wide variety of residency disciplines, with clusters in medicine, path, peds, and whatever happens to be the hot lifestyle residence of the moment (it was radiology & derm, then switched to anesthesiology, psych & emergency medicine); and 3) there is a certain amount of geographic inertia in matches (e.g., students at Penn are more likely to stay in Philly, while those at UW are more likely to remain in Seattle) which can be attributed to familiarity or familial biases. I would assign residency matches a very low priority among the criteria used to compare MD-PhD program, something like the 5th tie-breaker if you are trying to decide which program to attend.

Does it seem like fewer graduates are going into IM these days? Some of these lists, including several large programs, are only graduating 1-3 people into IM. Surgery, anesthesia, and derm appear to be the major beneficiaries?

I’m not sure where you get that impression - several classes, even this year, have had 30%+ go to IM (UWash has over half of their class going to IM). I don’t see any dip at all.
 
I tell my trainees that in an orchestra we need all instruments and voices... Even the occasional contribution of the cymbals or rare instruments. Bottom-line, they all contribute to the experience of biomedical science, and all specialties need physician-scientists.
