Charting Outcomes in the Match, 2011

2011

Introduction
the data sources used for Charting Outcomes do not include other important applicant factors such as course evaluations, reference letters, and the Medical School Performance Evaluation. Despite the fairly strong relationship between USMLE Step scores and match success, the distributions of scores show that program directors consider other qualifications, and a high score is not a guarantee of success. Even in the most competitive specialties a few individuals with higher scores are not successful. Neither is a lower score a bar to success. In the less competitive specialties, U.S. seniors with scores slightly above passing usually match to their preferred specialties. T he data also are reassuring because they indicate that at least some programs do not employ an arbitrary cutoff or decline to consider applicants with less than excellent test performance. T he data in this report support the follo wing straightforward advice one should give to an applicant.  Rank all of the programs you really want, without regard to your estimate of your chances with those programs.  Include a mix of both highly competitive and less competitive programs within your preferred specialty.  Include all of the programs on your list where the program has expressed an interest in you and where you would accept a position.  If you are applying to a competitive specialty and you would want to have a residency position in the event you are unsuccessful in matching to a program in your preferred specialty, also rank your most preferred programs in an alternate specialty.  Include all of your qualifications in your application, but know that you do not have to be AOA, to have the highest USMLE scores, to have publications, or to have participated in research projects to match successfully. Program directors and applicants will find the tables and charts for the specialty of their particular interest later in this report.

The first edition of Charting Outcomes in the Match was published in August 2006 using data from the 2005 Main Residency Match. Starting with the 2007 edition, Charting Outcomes in the Match was published biennially, based on the Main Match of the same year. Specialties that offered 50 or more positions in a given year are included in these reports. New specialties were added, including Otolaryngology and Neurology in 2007, and Neurological Surgery in 2009. No new specialties were added to the 2011 report; however, Transitional Year was excluded this year because it is not a specialty choice. Twelve measures are incorporated in the reports. Probability analysis was introduced in 2009 to evaluate the relationship between match success and contiguous ranks and USMLE Step 1 scores. For the purposes of this report, match success is defined as a match to the specialty of the applicant’s first-ranked program, because that is assumed to be the specialty of choice. Lack of success includes matching to another specialty as well as failure to match at all. No distinction was made based on whether applicants matched to their first, second, third, or last choice. Combining data from the NRMP, the database of AAMC’s Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS), USMLE scores made available by the National Board of Medical Examiners (NBME) and the Educational Commission for Foreign Medical Graduates (ECFMG), and other AAMC data sources, we identified twelve applicant characteristics. NBME and ECFMG have granted permission to use USMLE scores, and the National Resident Matching Program and the Association of American Medical Colleges have collaborated to produce this report. Because graduating seniors from U.S. allopathic medical schools match at higher rates than do other applicant groups, and because some of those groups contain small numbers of applicants, this report distinguishes only two types of applicants: U.S. seniors and independent applicants.1 It should be noted, however, that the independent applicant category is a heterogeneous group. Moreover, because independent applicants match to their preferred specialties at much lo wer rates than do U.S. seniors, the specialty-specific probability graphs for independent applicants are less predictive of success. Summary So me general observations apply to all of the specialties in this report. Applicants who are successful in matching to their preferred specialty are more likely to:  Rank more programs within their preferred specialty  Be U.S. seniors  Have higher USMLE Step 1 and Step 2 scores  Be members of AOA Although some other measures seem to be related to match success for some specialties, the relationships were not consistent enough to draw broad conclusions across specialties.
