Previously we showed the USMLE scores of US IMGs in the 2013 Match. Please click on the link for definitions of US and non-US IMG. In 2013, 5100 US IMG and 7600 non-US IMG applied for residency. The following tables are for non-US IMGs in the 2013 Match.
A vast majority of non-US IMGs matched into Internal Medicine in 2013. Let us break it down by scores.
|Specialty||Mean STEP 1|
|Specialty||Mean STEP 2|
The average scores of matched non-US IMGs in 2013 were similar to those of US seniors who matched in 2011 (although it is inaccurate to compare because USMLE scores tend to increase every year). However, USMLE scores are just one component of the residency application evaluation. I have worked with incredibly talented American graduate, US IMG, and non-US IMG co-residents. Let’s hope we continue to invite the best and the brightest into the profession.
