Family Physician Positions Remain Open

Fact #414: In the residency match this spring, only 79 percent of the available family practice positions were filled, and the percentage of total slots matched by US medical graduates sank to 41 percent. In internal medicine, 97 percent of residency positions were filled (up slightly from the previous year), and US seniors took 55 percent of the available positions.

Fact #415
: In addition to a lack of applications, medical schools have no more money for training and the faculty is aging or unprepared and/or unskilled.
