Unmatched: Why It Happens

Mismatch Trend: Each year, the number of applicants exceeds the available positions.
Growth in Applicants: The applicant pool continues to grow, increasing the competition.
Steady Positions: The number of PGY-1 positions has not increased proportionately.
Securing a residency position can be challenging, but it doesn’t reflect your abilities or potential as a physician. The competition is tough due to the high number of applicants. Many qualified individuals find themselves without a match, but this setback does not define your future or your worth.
