12 What We Have Learned Applicants continue to apply to large # programs(15-25)…YET Applicants rank a reasonable number (10) The average # of interviews should be <10

13 Information Pathways Specialty Society Website SF Match Website Word of Mouth AAOS Match Webinar (Fall 2013)

16 Match 2013: Code of Conduct Subspecialty Societies –Definite Application Deadline END Programs –Send out interview invites w/in 30 days –Let applicants know if they are NOT getting an interview

19 Current Match Issues Accreditation Monitor Sanctions Ethics/Professionalism Funding of Fellowships AAOS Book of Fellowships

20 OIM Surgeon-Industry Relationships in Orthopaedic Surgery 1/13 Funds from industry for residency and fellowship programs and other training programs should be distributed through unbiased, independent, third party organizations or through central administration of the institution. Residency and fellowship training programs should stop accepting individual-focused grants from companies and require companies to submit funding through either of the aforementioned approaches.

21 What We Have Learned Rank list should be taken seriously as less than 60% match at first choice More applicants than positions in ALL subspecialties Increasing number of fellowships to match increasing applicants

22 What We are Doing Working towards Universal match Annual Progress Report Submission to JBJS “Topics in Training” Collaboration with ARCOS Collaboration with CORD
