The next most frequently asked question is "Where can I find NRMP match results for the past years?"

Last year the American Medical Association AMA has contacted all web site 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 programs requirements contains number of unfilled positions in the last year match as well as number of IMGs for each program reported by the programs themselves.
