IMG friendly Pediatrics Residency Programs
(By Residency Match data)
Pediatrics offers the highest match rate for IMGs
Pediatrics with near 3000 offered positions is one of the friendliest specialties for IMGs.
Around 2000 US MDs and 600 US DOs applied for Pediatrics residency. Pediatrics was not the main target for some US MDs and DOs and, as result, around 2300 positions were filled by US graduates with around 700 positions left for IMGs.
Around 1000 IMGs applied to pediatrics and around 800 had interviews and participated in the Match.
219 US IMGs and 335 non-US IMGs were matched. The highest match rate among all the specialties (72% for US IMGs and 68% for non-US IMGs) makes Pediatrics the friendliest by the probability of the match.
The probability of the match for interviewed applicants starts from 35% (55% US IMGs) for candidates with ~200 Step 1 score and increases to near 95% (100% US IMGs) for candidates with Step 1 > 250.
