Match A Resident’s Compatibility Score Explained
Each year, Match A Resident gives residency candidates the most current information. So, we contact thousands of programs directly. And, our information is accurate. It is better than what you can find searching the web. Our website compares your Step Scores, Time Since Graduation, amount of (USCE), and Visa Status with programs. So, we can give you a Customized Residency Program List. And, your list has a Compatibility Score. The score helps you determine which programs are best for you.
What is the Compatibility Score?
Our Customized Residency Lists consist of programs you qualify for based on their minimum requirements. But, what if you cannot afford to apply to all the programs on your List? The Compatibility Score shows you which residency programs are the top choices for you.
Essentially, these scores are based on a comparison between your applicant criteria versus the minimum requirements of a program. Individual program scores consider the program’s requirements, your applicant criteria, IMG friendliness, program prestige, and beyond.
The compatibility criteria are given numerical values, with 100 being the highest, and added up to calculate the final Compatibility Score. So, the more you meet and exceed a program’s minimum requirements, the higher your score!
The truth is, some residency programs are more compatible with your criteria than others. Our Compatibility Score feature provides the next level of guidance to your program research and improves how you select programs.
