Surgery Residency

General surgery residency in numbers

1569 categorical and 1136 preliminary general surgery residency positions offered are around 8% of all residency positions. 99.7% of categorical positions were filled during the main match. The match rate is around 83% for US MDs, 69% for DOs, and 42/30% for US/non-US IMGs. Only 54% of preliminary positions were filled during the main match while the rest of preliminary positions were filled during the SOAP. To leave places for the SOAP for highly qualified candidates is a traditional behavior for general surgery preliminary residency. With just a 50% match rate among interviewed US MD candidates scored Step 2 < 230, general surgery is a competitive specialty even for US MDs.
