I want to practice internal medicine in the U.S. I'm a U.S. citizen. If I start at SGU this Fall, would I have difficulty matching? I know there is an impending residency crunch, but will this affect SGU graduates graduating in 2017? Thanks.

there is already a residency crunch...this might work out for you but don't be blind to the risk, there is definitely a risk you never get a residency here if you go international

just check the percentage of im matches from international schools

http://im-for-imgs.com/2012/03/28/2012-match-data/

2011 was 44% match
2012 was 43%

US allopathic is over 95% and osteopathic matched over 74% into osteopathic (which doesn't account for the DO grads that chased an allopathic residency)

I read somewhere that SGU match rate was 80% overall
