Pediatric Residency Placements

Just the Facts

Pediatric Residency Placements

The 2018 Match Statistics for positions approved by the American Osteopathic Association showed that eight programs offered 31 positions in Pediatrics. Nineteen (19) of those positions filled in the NMS match, the remaining twelve (12) have filled in the post-match scramble process.

This year has seen the largest number of entries in the National Resident Matching Program (NRMP); 43,909 applicants submitted rank lists for 33,167 total positions. There were 30,232 PGY-1 positions with 2,939 positions available in pediatrics or pediatric specialties and combined programs. Of these, 2,867 (97.6%) filled in the match or SOAP.

According to 2016 data from the NRMP, the mean COMLEX-USA Level 1 score for those who successfully matched in pediatrics was 550 (range 500-610) and the mean COMLEX-USA Level 2 CE score was approximately 569 (range 500-630). These candidates also participated in research, although there was not a significant difference noted in research completion between those who matched and those who did not. In what will not be a surprise to any pediatrician, candidates for pediatric residencies served in numerous volunteer roles throughout their medical education.
