Preliminary results of the Specialties Matching Service Match for Appointment Year 2015 are ominous for kidney specialists, according to the American Society of Nephrologists (ASN). “At first glance the results continue the recent trend for declining interest in nephrology careers, with 51% of programs (68 of 134) and 32% of positions (120 of 374) going unfilled,” the ASN stated. This represents a 6.3% and 23.7% increase in the number of unfilled programs and unfilled positions, respectively, in just one year. Of note, the number of programs withdrawn from this year’s Match doubled over 2014, from 9 to 19.”
