Fortunately I matched! One of my freinds is a PGY2 internal medicine resident who wants to try to scramble. I am wondering if anyone would be willing to help him out either by posting here or via email?
It's on the nrmp site. After you login, go to my reports. Then click regional match stats. It will show you the regional breakdown for all specialties. The 29 unfilled spots mentioned above are actually for pgy-1 anesthesia. There are 60 unfilled pgy-2 anesthesia spots.
There were only 5 unfilled PGY-2 Positions in Radiology-Diagnostic out of 855 and 1 unfilled PGY-1 Positions out of 126 positions. In Anesthesiology for PGY-1 there are 29 unfilled positions out of 443 and 60 PGY-2 positions unfilled out of 846.
If you look at the stats gas does look fairly competitive with the exception of pg2 spots in the northeast. this is where the openings are. Granted, this is where the most spots in general are at almost 400 but 42 unfilled is more than 10% in this category. The other categories like pg1 and pg2 in other parts of the country were pretty competitive in my opinion.
UMDNJ-Robert Wood Johnson (Camden) at Cooper Hospital will have 3 CA-1 unfilled positions for 2005. They are a brand new program that got provisional accreditation in 11/2003, and was not able to enter into the match process. They have 3 positions per year. This was according to an email I received from them.
