Medical School Enrollment

The Medical School Interview: From preparation to thank you notes: Empowering advice to help you succeedThe Residency Interview: How To Make the Best Possible ImpressionBy Jessica Freedman MD, MedEdits

As most medical school applicants know, the Association of American Medical Colleges planned to increase United States allopathic medical school enrollment by 30% by the year 2015. The actual increase will be 23% by 2015. This data is outlined in the 2009 Medical School Enrollment Survey. Based on the results of the 2010 residency match, the competition for residency positions is increasing. Unless the number of residency training positions also increases, matching will become even more competitive. This is especially concerning for US citizen and non-US citizen international medical graduates.
