How did Texas Medical Students Fare in the 2014 NRMP?

The Texas Medical Association has published an analysis of the 2014 NRMP for Texas Medical Students (see http://www.texmed.org/template.aspx?id=5183#Failing for additional details). In brief, Texas could do better. 100 Texas MS4s initially failed to match, but of these 68 later found positions. Ultimately 2% of Texas’ MS4s did not match for a PGY1 position. A poll of Texas Deans’ of Student Affairs found that orthopedics, surgery, otolaryngology, dermatology, obstetrics and gynecology, and ophthalmology were the most competitive specialties for Texas medical students this year.
