It depends on the specialty. Since you mentioned psychiatry, the number of IMG's applying has dropped by ~1,200 while the number of USMG applying increased by ~600 the past 5 years. So a lot of the difference is just on that and the door closing on IMGs I think. So as a DO, you're likely going to continue to be relegated to new/low-tier programs as more USMDs get a disproportionate number of interviews and such. The % USMD matching psych has been inching up while the %DO matching has been inching down.I like the Psych stats... It looks like nearly everybody with decent boards got in, statistically of course. But tbh it looks like things improved for DOs everywhere.. Weird with the merger and competition increasing each year.
