Joint NRMP/ECFMG Report Released: Charting the Outcomes of International Medical Graduates in the Medical Residency MATCH 2013

Charting Outcomes in the Match International Medical Graduates: Characteristics of Applicants Who Matched to Their Preferred Specialty in the 2013 Main Residency Match is a collaborative publication of the National Resident Matching Program® (NRMP®) and the Educational Commission for Foreign Medical Graduates (ECFMG®).
"Some general observations apply to all of the specialties in this report. IMG applicants who are successful in matching to their preferred specialty are more likely to:
  • rank more programs within their preferred specialty
  • have higher USMLE scores
  • have fewer attempts at ECFMG certification examinations
  • be U.S. citizens
  • speak English as a native language
  • have obtained ECFMG certification closer to the Match year (2013)
  • have graduated from medical school closer to the Match year (2013)"
"Despite the fairly strong relationship between USMLE Step scores and match success, the distributions of scores show that program directors consider other qualifications, and high USMLE scores are not a guarantee of success."
