I believe that also includes medicine prelim positions. Is that true? (I don't have access to that section in nrmp.org)bof said:Main Residency Match 2005
Spots Offered: 7491
Spots Unfilled: 384
That is kind of interesteding. For more look at my reports in the nrmp website.
Well, if the numbers in Gen Surg are anything like they were last year, almost all of the unfilled spots were surg prelim positions (the surgery list combines the prelim and categorical). Only about 4 categorical surgery spots were unfilled last year.uxbridge said:Yeah,
What I found interesting too was that Gen Surg has more unfilled spots than Int. Med! (Wish they would give more details re: IM though )
Is that common?
Definitely talk with your Dean's office - they can potentially be a big help in the scramble. The scramble is not actually a "match" process. Think of it like finding a job in the normal (ie non-medical) job maket -- there are a certain number of openings, you send your CV, etc, to those programs, the programs will entertain applications, and then make an offer to an applicant. The applicant will then have a very limited time to tell the program if they accept the position offer. Often people can secure a position on the first day of the scramble, especially if they are looking for prelim positions, however you should be prepared to take Wednesday off as well in case you are unlucky on Tuesday.oddsbuster said:I didn't match. I ranked only 2 programs so that was probably a big mistake. Does anyone know what the scramble is like? Do we find out right away if we matched? Should I take Wednesday off from work, too? I'm applying for prelim.
The list is posted on the NRMP website for people that have participated in the Match but did not match. Someone posted the list on the General Med thread but it has changed and is "evolving". As of now, there are only 25 programs in IM prelim that are not filled.LisaY said:Where do you find this list of evolving unmatched programs?
