The following table was taken from a presentation given by Mark Cummings, Ph.D. the Associate Dean of MSUCOM in February 2005 on Intern Registration Programs 2004-2005 for each D.O. medical school. If you look at the "% Non-participants" columns, why is there such a large number of non-participants in the match for some schools? Is that stat correlated with the lower quality of medical education at that particular D.O. school? Please comment.

What you need to look at is the % unmatched. Which doesn't seem to correlate to school quality. :/

Alrighty, first, it's ACGME, not LCGME. ACGME is the MD residency org, vs AOA which is sort of the DO residency org. (LCME is the MD school accreditation org.)

Second, on average, 60% of DOs match ACGME instead of AOA. Most of those DOs are in primary care or IM ACGME residencies, not the more sexy ones, but DOs match plenty of ACGME anesthesia & EM. A whole lotta those DOs skip the AOA match entirely, because if you don't skip the AOA match, you're contractually bound to any AOA residency that matches you.

Third, how annoying is it to watch 2005 data fly by when perfectly good 2008 data is out?

More data than you can possibly want is available on www.NRMP.org for the ACGME match (go to "Data and Reports" and find deeply satisfying and lengthy data and reports), on www.natmatch.com for the AOA match (ridiculously hidden 2008 data CAN be found if you work for it through Google, such as this), and on www.sfmatch.org, the San Francisco match which covers ACGME uro, plastics and other uber-competitive stuff.
