I was browsing the NRMP web site and took a look at their pdf docs on matching stats for the last few years. It appears as if out of the thousand or so applicants over that span, between 20-30% are IMGs... The number of US seniors last year was around 680 (if I recall correctly although don't quote me on that ). Therefore, it would seem that US seniors should have absolutely no problem matching at a preferred program. Any comments? I could have read the table incorrectly... but if not, it would seem that as long as you're a US senior, you could basically walk into gensurg... As an aside, recently at an interview, the prgram director informed us applicants that out of 400 or so applicants to the program, about 100 were IMGs... She claimed that none of the IMGs received an invitation to interview... This really doesn't make sense to me considering the numbers that I saw on the NRMP web site. Any comments?
