    Here is a summary of the match stats posted on the NRMP web site today at noon. Obviously these will change after the scramble.

    SPECIALTY OFFERED UNFILLED %UNFILLED
    Anes 1169 57 4.9%
    Derm 275 0 0.0%
    Emed 1211 25 2.1%
    FP 2962 620 20.9%
    IM 7135 470 6.6%
    OBGYN 1138 71 6.2%
    Ortho 570 5 0.9%
    Path 398 65 16.3%
    Peds 2341 223 9.5%
    PM&R 323 34 10.5%
    Psych 1003 60 6.0%
    Radonc 97 2 2.1%
    Rads 920 19 2.1%
    Surg 2019 469 23.2%
    Trans 1062 85 8.0%

    I added the PGY1 and PGY2 spots when necessary. Hopefully I didn't make too many math errors but this list should give the general idea for those who are curious.
    Oh yeah, I matched!

    I didn't put some of the specialties like ENT because the data wasn't clear?? Only 39 spots were listed but I know there are ~100 programs.
    Look at the surgery numbers!! I was expecting as much but it is still impressive!

    The ENT, neurosurgery, optho, urology, neurology, and plastics numbers don't include the early match programs. I geuss some of these are in the regular match. Some specialties like nuclear medicine and preventive med are mostly non NRMP, so their numbers are also very low.

    The surgery unfilled number is high, but remember that this includes prelim surgery. Last year there were only 40 unfilled categorical surgery programs. I was surprised with the higher number of unfilled radiology spots this year than last (17 vs 7).

    Wow, 23% of Surgery spots unfilled! How many are categorical spots, though? Any thoughts?

    I forgot about the prelim spots being included in the total. The anesthesia numbers jumped... almost 12% unfilled last year.

    Just checked scutwork for last years stats on surgery. There were 512 total unfilled surgery last year and only 68 of those were categorical. There is actually less unfilled spots this year, so the surgeon shortage stuff is inaccurate. Plus, most likely nearly all of the open spots were filled post match.

    The info for this year's match is on the NRMP site if you have a login. Once you login, it is under My Reports. Unless you were registered for the match this year, you can't see them (that's why we posted this info here).

    Yeah, Peds big looser. Thsi puts Anesthesia in the top 5 most competitive specialies to match into. Right behind Derm, Rad(Onc), Ortho and ER!
    I feel soooo good!! <img border="0" alt="[Clappy]" title="" src="graemlins/clappy.gif" />

    Also looks like PM&R is also becoming more competitive.

    PM&R had about 63 spots open last year compared to 34 spots left this year.
    Looks like somebody leaked our secret...
    PM&R stands for Plenty of Money and Relaxation... :D

    I think some people confuse competitiveness with popularity. Just because there is less unfilled spots in EM/Anesthesia, it does not mean they are even close to the competitiveness of Derm or Ortho. I have friends who didn't match in Ortho this year who are far superior applicants to those who matched into EM/Anesthesia.

    Not that it really matters, but I just think people should think clearly when they are choosing a specialty.

    Congrats to all those who matched. Surgery rocks no matter how unpopular it is. :p
