Match to High Risk

US Graduates (compared to International Medical Students) filled 72% of OB/GYN residency spots this year in the match. OB/GYN, as a high risk specialty, has been considerably unpopular amongst medical students the past several years. The story is from the subscription required AMNews.

In the 2006 National Resident Matching Program held March 16, graduates of U.S. allopathic medical schools filled 72.4% of obstetrics and gynecology programs, or 835 of the 1,154 positions. It marked the first time that U.S. allopathic graduates matching in ob-gyn has climbed out of the 60% range in three years.

And here I was thinking in ten years all the children would be delivered by foreign graduates.
