The total number of US medical school graduates who selected categorical programs in internal medicine in this year's match fell by 7.9%. Consequently, the program fill rate for US graduates declined for the eighth consecutive year, from 55.9% to 53.1%. Preliminary positions and international graduates continue to increase, though questions remain whether these residents serve as good role models to encourage student interest in internal medicine.
We reviewed the 1993 National Resident Matching Program data and several curricular reforms implemented in our internal medicine clerkship and residency program to evaluate whether such reform might enhance interest in general internal medicine.
