Review of the 2015 NRMP Dermatology Match

The NRMP has released data (“Results and Data: 2015 Main Residency Match,” April 2015, www.nrmp.org ) about the 2015 match that is of interest to future dermatology applicants. According to Table 1, page 5, there were 116 dermatology programs that offered 385 advanced PGY2 dermatology positions. 485 US MS4s applied and 336 matched (87.3%). Table 2 (page 9) adds additional detail: of the 381 matched applicants, 336 were US MS4s, 30 were US graduates, 5 were osteopathic graduates, 1 was a US IMG,  and 9 were non-US IMGs. Table 3 (page 13) indicates that more PGY2 positions were offered in 2015 than in the previous 5 years.
