Radiology’s shine fades a bit among medical students

April 14, 2009 Diagnostic Imaging. Radiology’s shine fades a bit among medical students By H.A. Abella Radiology may no longer be the fairest of all the possible specialty choices for U.S. medical school seniors, according to results of the 2009 National Residency Matching Program. Still, it remains within the top 10 most popular medical specialties. Radiology was the fifth most popular specialty back in 2007 among U.S. senior med students who participated in the NRMP program. By 2009, the specialty had fallen three positions. Results reported by the NRMP's "Match Day" ranked the top 10 most popular medical specialties: • Neurological surgery • Dermatology • Orthopedic surgery • Emergency medicine • Obstetrics/gynecology • Surgery • Otolaryngology • Radiology • Internal medicine • Neurology The number of U.S.-based and foreign medical students and physicians who applied for radiology residency and internship slots this year rose slightly more than 2%, with 1085 positions filled, or nearly 99% of positions offered. Last year, 1063 applicants filled 98% of the available slots.
