    I know that a few people are going to MP II from CSPM but it is only word of mouth. Best of luck to those who are still looking for a program.

    Does anyone have a list of the programs that are in MP II?

    So if all the residency spots get filled, there's still going to be a guaranteed 57 people who don't get matched? I thought the residency shortage was over. Wasn't there a narrative of "we have a surplus of residency spots now"? Or am I reading this wrong

    Unfortunately there will be 57 who don't get a spot and will most likely apply next year. This will add to the number of applicants next year. The shortage problem is never going away. The problem isn't the number of residencies but rather the variability in the number of graduates per year.

    I guess we don't know for sure how many didn't match until after MP II at the end of the week. There may be programs that don't take anyone.

    Capping the class size for all 9 schools can be beneficial, i.e. <600 grads per year. But, this is a business so it probably won't happen.

    It will be nice though that those who matched can make a thread about the dos and don'ts of matching for current and to be pod students!!

    That's nuts. I don't blame them for being selective but scary to think about. Some program directors during interviews mentioned people being unrealistic when applying to programs or people with stellar grades but no people person skills. But this number seems too large to only consist of oddballs.

    Would love to see a Do's and Don't for Matching starting from 1st year to 4th year as well. Valuable information.

    Dos: work hard, be humble, be professional

    Don'ts: Be lazy, be non-teachable, be unprofessional

    I think that's about it. You will visit a lot of programs and you will find the one that fits your personality.

    I have a question regarding what exactly is meant by unrealistic expectations from a students standpoint when applying to clerkships & residency positions. For example, two of the programs that I can see myself interested in is Mercy Regional Medical Center in Cleveland & Grant MC. I know that both of these programs have min GPA (3.0)/Class rank (50%). So, can I assume that if a student is right at the bubble of 3.0/50% that they could match at these programs or are the students matching there much higher say 3.5/upper 25%.

    From what I heard at Kent specifically during interview: Some of these students did not apply to enough programs that were within their GPA range.

    For example- 1 student who did not match only applied to 2 programs thinking they were matched extremely high from what they heard. That in itself is naive thinking.

    Some students with not so stellar GPAs may apply to only top tier programs with unrealistic expectations to match instead of focusing on maximizing their yield through other programs.

    To reiterate what has been repeated on this thread- If you worked hard in school, passed your boards, and are a decent human being- you should have no problem finding a residency program that fits you.

    We have pretty strict GPA and class rank cut offs. We typically get good students that are strong applicants. Every 3-4 months we have a student who should not be passing rotations and getting a residency program. Since the schools (some more so than others) are so unwilling to weed students out in the name of keeping those tuition $ flowing, I don't have a problem with a limited number of residency programs that may be slightly less than the number of graduates.

    Sorry, congrats to those that matched. Carry on.

    Last year there were 576 active positions and 550 new graduates. So there was a surplus of active positions last year compared to new graduates. So the extra seats ate into the residual graduates from previous years a bit.

    This year there were 571 active positions and 576 new graduates. So there wasn't a surplus of active positions. If you count all the approved positions then there should still be a surplus compared to new graduates, but not every approved position is active every cycle.

    So far it looks like about 86% of new graduates have been placed at the end of Match Part I, but we'll have to see what happens after Match Part II (scramble). There's the potential for new graduate placement to end up anywhere from that 86% up to 96%. Although, yes, last cycle the placement rate for new graduates was 97.8% after Match Part II, but they also had 26 fewer graduates entering match last cycle and 5 more active spots and that 31 spot swing is pretty significant when we're dealing in the 500-600 range every year.

    Also, for our class specifically Sweatshirt, enrollment was low so we'll probably see fewer new graduates entering match during our cycle than in the cycles directly preceeding ours.

    People say it all the time but you will more than likely match if you worked hard in class with a decent GPA, work hard on rotations, be teachable, don't tell a resident/attending they are wrong when they are most certainly correct, etc.

    I tend to remember students that are helpful and teachable. If I ask a question and you don't know it, come back the next day or later on with the answer to show you looked it up. In surgery, help position the patient, get images up, put the tourniquet on, have local drawn up if applicable, pull your own gown/gloves, adjust the light, etc and etc.

    Being "normal" goes a long way.

    For any underclassmen, this is all you need to know. Work hard, show some initiative and you'll be fine. For those of you who don't know what I mean: work hard, show up early, leave late, be prepared for cases, and helpful while rounding with residents. If you make their life easier, they'll remember that.

    Also, if you don't know an answer to a question, don't get too worked up. During my first month out, I would take it too personal if I didn't know an answer which threw off my game a bit. Then I learned to just look it up later and report/call/text/email/or whatever the next day, and all would be fine. Doing that actually got me a great LOR for residency. I have plenty of friends with subpar gpa's who are going to really good programs, and I know people with great gpa's who didn't get interviews bc of their attitudes while out. A good gpa may get you the externship, but a crappy personality will prevent you from matching.

    Ps.... glad to see you active again pacpod. Hope all is well!

    What was the pass-rate after the administration of the part 2 retake? Keeping track of all the different form of eligible and qualified is a full time job, but some of the 576 would have been knocked out by part 2 and wouldn't have been eligible - potentially reducing the applicant population below the positions available count?

    Underclassmen: This thread: how difficult is to get into podiatry residency

    This is what I used as a guideline for my clerkships.

    Congrats to all who matched!

    Thats a pretty bad list compared to most years. Jewish Kentucky, Macomb, Gundserson and then a whole lot of meh and the typical NYC programs. I guess University Hospital NJ is the old UMDNJ program so thats probably good training? You never want to scramble but this year looks especially rough. Good luck to those in the scramble.

    It means they don't offer good training. Either people aren't rotating through, or the ones that do put them last on their rank list...or not at all. Or in the case of the NYC programs, they probably don't get many externs (if they take em) from outside of NYCPM and plenty of NYCPM students do a majority of their rotations outside of New York. Couple that with the fact that there are nearly 50 seats between all of the NYC residency programs and they are typically well represented on the list every year.

    100% match rate is great. BUT.... Remember.... Some of those students may not have matched into RRA certified programs. IMHO... I'd rather wait a year to match with an RRA program than get a PMSR program only.

    No you don't. You're best chance of getting a residency is the year you graduate. Ask some of the non-matched from previous years and ask if they'll take non-RRA programs from day one or continue to fight for a spot year in and year out and strike out.
