An Overview of the Allopathic Match.

Journal Article (Journal Article)

The number of allopathic emergency medicine (EM) programs has been progressively increasing over the years. In 2018, allopathic EM postgraduate year-1 spots, compared with 2012, increased by around 60% to reach 2278 positions. EM is considered a competitive specialty and therefore, in this article we help guide students interested in EM through the allopathic match requirements, application process, interviews, and ranking EM programs. Additionally, we tackle the combined emergency medicine residency programs, namely the combined EM-Family Medicine (FM), EM-Anesthesiology, EM-Internal Medicine (IM), EM-IM-Critical Care Medicine, and EM-Pediatrics residency programs. Finally, we explain the increased likelihood of matching with the single graduate medical education accreditation system expected to happen in the year 2020.
