- To provide insight into the dynamics that determine the pattem of participation of international medical graduates (IMGs) in graduate medical education (GME).
- Data on IMG-dependent programs (ie, those having at least 50% of first-year positions filled by IMGs) and non-IMG-dependent programs in 6 core specialties (internal medicine, family practice, obstetrics and gynecology, surgery, pediatrics, and psychiatry) were matched with application data from the 1989 and 1995 National Resident Matching Program (NRMP).
- Participation of IMG-dependent and non-IMG-dependent programs in the 1995 NRMP and the pattern of US medical graduate (USMG) and IMG applications to these programs in 1989 and 1995.
- Of the 1634 programs in the 6 specialties, 93.5% participated in the 1995 NRMP.
The 1165 non-IMG-dependent programs were significantly more likely to participate in the NRMP and were slightly more likely to fill their offered positions than were the 469 IMG-dependent programs.
Specifically, IMGs constituted 76% of applicants to IMG-dependent programs and only 14% of applicants to non-IMG-dependent programs.
Changes in NRMP data between 1989 and 1995 indicated that the number of IMG applications to IMG-dependent programs increased 88.7%, as did the number of applicants ranked.
- Persistent differences exist in the mix of USMGs and IMGs applying through the NRMP to IMG-dependent and non-IMG-dependent programs. (...)
