Currently, DO and MD residencies are matched in separate processes. In 2020, they merge into a single program. Today we're going to dive into what that actually means for MD students, specifically Trinity and its graduates. Not to get out ahead of ourselves but: the news is good.
There is a myth already out there that IMGs will have a more difficult time in the match because more US trained DO students will be applying for the same residencies. This is verifiably false. In fact, the opposite is true. MD students of any kind, including Trinity's graduates, will have a better opportunity to match after the merge. Let's get into why.
