NRMP continues to serve as a trusted partner in the transition from undergraduate to graduate medical education. The 2017 Main Residency Match was the largest on record when measured by the numbers of applicants and positions offered and filled. Participation by students and graduates of osteopathic medical schools grew by 20 percent.
