1 Facts about the Match

2 Introduction  Prior to the mid 70’s, getting into a residency was “crazy”  Then the NIMP became the NRMP  Programs were still quite variable so getting into the “right place” was important (but still pyramidal)  The ACGME has “leveled the field”  Today the “Match” really means finding the program that matches the applicant

3 Caveats  Students get information from many sources (Student Affairs, current residents, other students, parents, family doctor, etc)  Much of the information is WRONG

11 111 (of 126) schools responded 14,623 seniors represented (NRMP = 16,070) 871 unmatched on Monday 3/15/10 (6.0%) 194 without a PGY-1 position on 3/29/10 (1.3%) 179 “ready to start” according to their student affairs deans (1.2%) 2010 Match-Scramble Survey

12 Of those not competitive for chosen field 49- USMLE issues 28- Rank order issues 18- Difficulty with the process 16- Geography 13- Overly Aggressive 11- Poor interviewing skills 6- Professionalism issues 2- Poor Letters of Recommendation 1- Poor advice 2010 Match-Scramble Survey

13 Things to consider  How competitive is the student  How competitive is the discipline  How much help is the student going to need, how do you help get it  Alternate Plan, where indicated  “What Color is Your Parachute-2010” by Richard Bolles ($12.91 at Amazon) Interviewing skills Dress  Careers in Medicine (AAMC resource)

15 Things to Address  Need to list at least 7 institutions that the student is willing to go to (or more)  Interviewing do’s and don’ts  How to put together a match list.

16 Determining “risk”  Surgery example risk of surgery is estimated by risk of operation x risk of patient  Match example Risk of not matching is a combination of risk of “chosen field” x risk of student  Take home message Understand how competitive your field is Understand how competitive you are

17 Risk of Discipline 90+%80-89%70-79%60-69%50-59% Anesthesiology 93%Emergency Med 88%Med Peds 77%Dermatology 69%Plastic Surgery 56% Neurology 95%Family Med 87%Orthopedics 75% Pathology 90%Internal Med 85%Otolaryngology 77% Pediatrics 90%Neurosurgery 82%Radiation Onc 79% Psychiatry 90%Obstetrics 88%Surgery 71% Radiology Diagnostic 90%Physical Med 89%

18 Your Risk  Getting an interview USMLE Step 1 Score Rank in Class Getting help  Getting ranked highly AOA “Audition Rotation” +/- Rank in Class Interview Letter from someone KNOWN

19 Getting “GOOD” advice  Career Counselor/Master Trainers Michael Flannery (IM) Erika Abel (IM/Peds) Lara Katzin (Neuro) William Marshall (Surgery & Specialties) Kelly O’Keefe (Emergency Medicine) Eduardo Gonzalez (Family Medicine)  USF Faculty (sometimes wrong)  Residents (often wrong, N=1)  Other Students (often wrong, N=0)  Family/friends (usually wrong, old)

20 USMLE Step 2 Exam  Required to be ranked?  Delay in starting residency  Score “decays” with time

21 Summary  Get good advice  Understand the field and yourself  Meet with USF Chair and/or PD  Rank at least 7 programs  Have a developed “Plan B”  DON’T count on the scramble  Take Step 2 early
