MSMP Match Shows Significant Growth for DOs

On December 1, the National Resident Matching Program® (NRMP) Medicine Specialties Matching Program (MSMP), the NRMP’s largest Fellowship Match comprised primarily of Internal Medicine subspecialties, released results for medicine fellowship positions that begin in July 2022.

This year’s MSMP Match was the largest on record, with 7,435 active applicants. The match showed that more DOs are going into medical subspecialties than ever before; the number of active DO graduate applicants increased more than 21 percent over last year for a total of 1,040—the largest growth among applicant types.
