Sorry for the Buzzfeed title, but I felt the absolute ridiculousness of the article merited a similarly ridiculous title. Here it is. Essentially, the commentary is slamming the recent critique of the ABR that was retracted (see other thread). The retracted article is still unavailable. My favorite paragraph is this: "Fourth, generally available National Residency Match Program (NRMP) data suggest that over the past decade, regardless of a belief within the radiation oncology community, trends in the quality of residents accepted for training have been drifting slightly downward (4)." Interestingly, the authors don't even bother to provide the citation number 4. Considering that Paul Waller (a DO), past ASTRO president that he is, would have very little hope of matching today, especially at places like Harvard or Vandy (where his 2nd author Lisa Kachnic was and now is currently chair), I find his commentary particularly amusing.
