The slow growth in GME compared to the growth in medical schools has given rise to fears that graduates would be unable to find placement in a program. However, the percentage of medical school graduates entering GME programs within a year of graduation has remained steady over the past decade, according to a study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association.

Based on data from the Association of American Medical Colleges’ Student Record System, from 2005 to 2015, the percentage of medical school graduates who did not enter a GME program the same year they graduated ranged from 2.6% to 3.5%, for an average of 3%. Additionally, the data showed that 99% of graduates started GME programs or were practicing within six years of graduation.
