Psychiatry is the main target for many qualified IMGs
Psychiatry with more than 2000 positions offered is friendly enough to be the main target for many IMGs.
Around 1400 US MDs and 450 US DOs applied to Psychiatry residency positions. But just around 1650 positions were filled by US graduates with around 350 positions left for IMGs.
Around 900 IMGs applied to psychiatry and around 700 had interviews and participated in the Match.
188 US IMGs and 133 non-US IMGs were matched. The match rate is 40% for US IMGs and non-US IMGs.
The probability of the match for interviewed applicants starts from 30% for candidates with ~200 Step 1 score and increases to near 65% (80% US IMGs) for candidates with Step 1 > 260.
