i'm curious why kentucky consistently has unmatched optho positions and are part of the normal (not early) match for optho?

Kentucky does participate in the early match. I hear it is a very strong surgical program - and it fills every year. I guess the NRMP data is a little misleading as they do NOT really have open positions. Not sure why they participate in the nrmp... perhaps someone has an idea....

I believe it is due to the fact that they offer an optional transitional year for those who match for ophtho. If any of them choose to do their pgy-1 year elsewhere then it shows up as an unmatched spot in the nrmp match. I think....
