    FP took a beating this year. I wonder how programs will be able to survive with so many unfilled spots. You need a steady, regular number of residents to run a residency program.

    I can't believe that Derm had an unmatched spot... is that possible?

    It was probably a place that changed it's mind about having an open spot, either before or after meeting with applicants. 31 derm spots nationwide seems ridiculously low though. No wonder it takes ~6 months to get a derm consult many places.

    Those # are for PGY-1 spots, thus anything with a transitional/prelim separate interview/match process is not included. Look at radiology, there are WAY more spots than that, same with derm.

    Quite right.

    There was a total of 5 unfilled positions for radiology this year, out of almost 1000 nationwide.

    The above statistics are only half of the story -- none of the advanced (i.e. PGY-2) positions are reported in that list. The PGY-2 list is available on the NRMP website.

    They are right below the PGY-1 spots, under documents. I think that you have to register first.

    just go to the nrmp website, log-in with your usual ID, and then click on 2004 Regional Match Stats. They'll have a breakdown of PGY-1 and 2 spots by region and specialty.

    Best of luck to all....only a couple more days!

    Thanks for the above stats.

    I'm an outside observer, and curious. How does it work for combined programs (such as Med-Peds, Med-Onc, etc.)?

    Do these programs go through NRMP, and (if so) how are the numbers reported?
