The American Osteopathic Association (AOA) recently announced that 886 osteopathic medical school seniors and recent graduates have been placed into 21 specialties after participating in the final AOA Match. An overwhelming number of those—more than 500—were matched with primary care residencies.

Approximately 54% of participants in the Match successfully matched into residency programs. The top five specialties that participants matched into include family medicine, internal medicine, orthopedic surgery, general surgery, and emergency medicine. Eighty-two percent of participants who successfully matched into a program matched into one of these five specialties.

This is to the final year for the AOA match, as the transition by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education to a single accreditation system for graduate medical education is nearly complete. Under this new system, most DO and MD students will now participate in the National Resident Matching Program (NRMP).
