What does it take to secure a position in the subspecialty and fellowship program of your choice?
As the years have passed, subspecialty training has increased in popularity. In some specialties, such as radiology and pathology, over 90% of residency graduates pursue fellowship training. Competition is intense, and some applicants are unsuccessful. In the 2013 NRMP Specialties Match (Fellowship Match), nearly 25% of applicants failed to match into one of 48 participating subspecialties. As you might expect, some subspecialties are more competitive than others. In competitive fields such as gastroenterology and gynecologic oncology, over 40% of applicants failed to match.
As an applicant, you seek to secure a position in your preferred subspecialty. You also hope to gain acceptance into your most coveted program. That makes the process even more challenging. We review "approximately 400 fellowship applications every year," writes the Division of Hematology & Oncology at the University of Pennsylvania. "There are 8 fellows accepted per year."
What does it actually take to secure a position in the subspecialty and program of your choice? In this book, we answer this important question. As with our book, The Successful Match: 200 Rules to Succeed in the Residency Match, we provide specific evidence-based advice to maximize your chances of success.
