The 2020 Accreditation and Match Merge: DO, MD, and Good News for Trinity Grads.

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.

Trinity School of Medicine: Study Globally, Practice Locally

In this latest infographic, we explore the often overlooked but nonetheless pivotal role international medical graduates play in the American healthcare system. 



International medical graduates (that is, doctors that graduated from non-US medical schools) make up 25% of physicians in the United States. This is because the United States only graduates 19,254 doctors a year from medical school, while having 28,849 residency slots to fill. Even with internationally trained physicians making up the shortfall, that only leaves the US maintaining rather than gaining ground on its physician shortage.
