What has happened to the Utah program? I always heard they were a good program, but this year all 5 residents that matched there this year are FMGs as well as 3 last year. What's going on? Has anyone heard anything recently?

P.S. I'm not trying to start another FMG vs US grad discussion, just curious about the program at Utah.

Straight from Utah - we've got a great first year class. We filled our 5 spots and only went down to position 12 or 14 on our rank list of about 30.

It's true, we give a fair shake to FMGs, so if you're a star-performer getting the cold shoulder from other programs just because you're an FMG, take a look at Utah. If you're a marginal passer who thinks Utah will take you, you're out of luck whether you're an FMG or a US grad.

It seems you don't understand the 'match' process !!!!
