General Comments on Match Statistics
This page contains download links to all of the statistics and data published by the National Residency Matching Program (NRMP) and other official organizations. These files are a wealth of information and provide significant insight into match trends including specialty competitiveness (AOA status, USMLE board scores, publications, applicants, available spots, unfilled spots, etc.) and individual residency program competitiveness (unfilled programs and available residency spots).
