Notes:

  1. N/A or empty cells=No information is available
  2. %IMGs_10 = 999, means Psychiatry residency program has IMGs, but InfoIMG could not obtain the total number or % of IMGs.
  3. The "%IMGs_10" field is as of June 30, 2010.
  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 (2007, 2008, 2009 and 2010) 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.

  6. There are no refunds.
