Notes:

  1. N/A or empty cells=No information is available
  2. IMGs_08 = 999 and %IMGs_08 = 999%, mean Ob/Gyn residency program has IMGs, but InfoIMG could not obtain the total number and/or % of IMGs, respectively.
  3. The "%IMGs_08" field is as of June 30, 2008. InfoIMG has yet been not able to update these fields for the batches that graduated in 2008 as PGY IV and joined as PGY I. However, whenever available that information is reflected in the data.
  4. USMLE Scores of 75 = Passing USMLE Scores (also referred to as "No Minimum USMLE Scores").
  5. %Caribbean Medical School IMGs: It is a percentage of residents who graduated from 4 main Caribbean Medical Schools. They are mainly US-IMGs. Caribbean Grads from all 4 schools that matched in the past 4 years (2005, 2006, 2007 and 2008) are added up and then shown as a % of total residents. This (along with other info) should help both US-IMGs and Non-US IMGs in deciding where to apply or not apply. All our Psychiatry, Pediatrics and Ob/Gyn lists for the 2009 match will have this "%Caribbean Medical School IMGs" column.

  6. There are no refunds.

Buying this or any other data from InfoIMG implies your agreement to InfoIMG Disclaimer and Terms of Use.
