Categories: ECFMG.

The NRMP has reported that more than 7,000(!) IMGs obtain first-year residency positions in U.S. programs of graduate medical education. Per ECFMG, this is the highest IMG match rate in 30 years. IMGs comprise approximately 25% of all active U.S. physicians. Of the IMGs that matched, 3,154 are U.S. citizens and 4,222 are citizens of other nations.

The NRMP’s rules regarding participation in the Match® are extremely detailed and strictly enforced. If you have been accused of violating the Match®, we can help.
