giddy up! someone decided I would make a good EM doc...

how bad would it be for me to ask someone who didn't match to post the locations of the 24 spots that didn't fill? against the rules?

Kinda weird to know I'll be an EP in 3 years. Cool though!

How do you know it's 24 spots?

Nevermind... Just found it ;)

That's Texan for "I'm very pleased to announce that I have apparantly found a compatable Emergency Medicine Training Program wherein I shall spend the next three years engaged in the cerebral process of gaining knowledge and skills sufficient to practice in said career."

In a different, but related celebratory context, it may also mean "Take your shirt off!"

CONGRADS to everyone who matched, and to those who will tomorrow.

Does anyone know if I matched into a 2-4 program, if my result would have said you matched into PGY1 and PGY2 spot?

I dont want to make it sound like I am not excited that I matched, because I am excited, but I just wanted to know if anyone knew the answer to this.

How do you know how many spots are open?

Thanks

Browsing other specialty threads trying to find this answer....from what I've seen so far, they don't distinguish whether or not you matched a pgy1 or a pgy2 + transitional/prelim.

+pissed+

My #3 is a categorical....I REALLY want to know where I matched!

Congrats to all who matched and best of luck to those who are scrambling!

How did you guys find out that only 24 positions went unfilled? EM has a total of how many positions? Like 1200?

Log into NRMP web-site, click on "My Reports" - it'll show how many unfilled spots there are in each specialty.

He should have never called - you or any of the other applicants. Likewise, you should have never told him. Hmmm, I smell match violation...

EDIT: I guess in my disgust for the entire match process I forgot my true manners. Good luck with the scramble Wick!

Congrats Wick! Sounded like a tight scramble with only 22 spots, so I'm sure it could not have been easy.
