The next most frequently asked question is "Where can I find a list of unfilled programs for the previous years?"

Last year, the American Medical Association AMA contacted all website owners that had match results posted informing them that this material is a subject of copyright. This is why it is almost impossible to find this information on the web. However, comparable information is available from www.residencyplace.com. The list of program requirements contains the number of unfilled positions in last year's match as well as the number of IMGs for each program reported by the programs themselves: 2002-2012 Unfilled Positions List

38,377 applicants participated in the Match 2012 competing for 24,034 first year positions. 22,074 American Medical Graduates (MDs and DOs) and 16,303 IMGs. Only 4,877 IMGs or 30% have matched. Keep in mind that percentages in NRMP report graphs don't account for applicants that did not submit their rank order list. This is not uncommon for an IMG to have no interviews and to not submit the list, thus NRMP's IMG match rate is shown as 40%, while in reality it is below 30%.
