Update from the 2016 match.........

Post by CaribMD »

The 2016 match:
The Good: I had an interview

The bad: I did not match

The problem is and will continue to be, there is a Cap for residency positions in the US and as residencies close new ones open up but very few new positions are truly created.

At the end of this years SOAP, it was verified that there were no open positions left that the programs were going to fill except some Preliminary Surgery PGY1 and they were looking for AMGs.

IMGs will continue to suffer, US IMGs more since we took out large loans and without residency we cannot pay them back. GL
