All our Pediatrics lists have been updated for 2011 match.

For 2011 match; in addition to expanded number of states, we have 2 new features!
  1. A new column called “% Caribbean IMGs”. It is a percentage of residents that graduated from 4 main Caribbean Medical Schools. Caribbean Grads from all 4 schools that matched in the past 3 years are added up and then shown as a % of total residents. If you are a US-IMG or Caribbean IMG, this would help you.
  2. %Non-Caribbean IMGs: If you are a non-US IMG, this would interest you. Since Caribbean IMGs are often (but not always) proxy for US-IMGs; it tells you (whenever available) out of all the residents approximately what percent of residents is non-US. We have derived this from “%IMGs” and %Caribbean IMGs.

Notes:

  1. N/A or empty cells=No information is available
  2. %IMGs_10 = 999, means Pediatric residency program takes IMGs, but the total number or % of IMGs was not available.
  3. The "%IMGs_10" and  "IMGs_10" fields are as of June 30, 2010. It was not possible to update these fields for the batches that graduated in 2010 as PGY 3 and joined as PGY 1. 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. Residency programs often give deadlines based on previous year. Always apply early before the interview slots are filled up.
