A study conducted by researchers at the George Washington University Health Workforce Institute counters the belief that residency positions are in short supply. The researchers examined data on the number of U.S. medical graduates and the growth of first-year positions available over the last decade, and found that there were 6,837 more positions than graduates of U.S. allopathic and medical schools in 2014. Those additional positions were filled by international medical graduates.

The researchers’ projection found that available first-year positions will continue to outnumber U.S. medical school graduates for the next decade. In 2014, they believe there will be about 4,600 more positions than U.S. medical graduates.
