International medical graduates (IMGs) face pandemic-related hurdles for the second year in a row, yet they remain resilient and competitive in their pursuit of graduate medical education (GME) in the United States. In the 2022 Match, a total of 7,670 IMGs received first-year residency spots in authorized US GME programmers, up 162 (2.2%) from previous year and 294 (4.0%) from 2020, the last Match cycle not notably impacted by the pandemic. 3,099 of the IMGs matched are nationals of the United States, down 53 from previous year. The outcomes of recent Matches show that the epidemic has not discouraged IMGs from seeking training in the United States and that they are still extremely competitive. It also illustrates that, despite pandemic hurdles, ECFMG continues to ensuring that the candidate pool of IMGs for the Match is large, varied, and well qualified.

Raising hopes and paving way for many more aspirants to work towards a US residency goal. Congratulations to those who fulfilled their dreams and best wishes to the new aspirants!!
