Rate of urology residency matches only 49%, data show

Article

Only half (49%) of the young physicians who register for the urology residency match will eventually match, and 11% of those will leave the specialty for other fields after matching.

Stanford, CA-Only half (49%) of the young physicians who register for the urology residency match will eventually match, and 11% of those will leave the specialty for other fields after matching, say researchers from the Stanford School of Medicine, Stanford, CA.

"This is benchmark data," first author Linda Shortliffe, MD, professor of urology at Stanford, told Urology Times. She explained that while there are data from other studies and surveys on matches and career outcomes, the validity of that data is questionable because nearly all of the data are derived from surveys.
