Dermatology in the 2014 NRMP Match

The National Residency Match Program (NRMP) has released data bout the 2014 match (see http://www.nrmp.org/wp-content/uploads/2014/04/Main-Match-Results-and-Data-2014.pdf ).
380 PGY2 (first year of dermatology residency to begin in 2015) positions were offered in 2014 (page 8). 374 were filled through the NRMP. US MS4s matched into 334 of these positions, 23 were filled by other US medical school graduates, and additional positions were matched by osteopathic medical students (3), US international medical school graduates (4), and non-US international medical school graduates (10). 9.1% of US MS4s who only ranked dermatology programs failed to match into dermatology positions, but 61% of independent applicants who only ranked dermatology failed to match (page 36, figure 6). In 2014 dermatology residency programs needed to rank 3.6 applicants for each available PGY2 position in order to fill all positions. This is the same number number of applicants needed to fill all positions as last year (page 42).
