Psychiatry: Graduation 5 or more years ago No Minimum USMLE Scores or <=80 Both H1 & J1 Either H1 or J1 IMG Friendly

All our Psychiatry 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 four main Caribbean Medical Schools. Caribbean Grads from all 4 schools that matched in the past 4 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.
