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 interview slots are filled up.
