Match Day: High-paid specialties still in, primary care still out
On Match Day, graduating med students around the country found out where they'll be doing their clinical training for the next few years. Just over 42% of the family medicine residency slots in this year's match went to seniors receiving their MDs this year from U.S. med schools. About 49% of the slots went to a combination of foreign med school grads, seniors at osteopathic med schools, and people who graduated from U.S. med schools in previous years. Nine percent of the slots went unfilled.
