DOs Perform Strongly in 2021 PSM

The National Resident Matching Program (NRMP) released the results of the 2021 Pediatric Specialties Match (PSM), for positions that will begin in 2022. The 2021 PSM once again surpassed the prior year to become the largest in history. For DOs, that meant an 81 percent match rate this year. Significant gains included a 24 percent increase in the number of active applicants and a 22 percent increase in the number of DOs that matched over 2020.


More information on the breakdown of DO performance can be found in the accompanying infographic.


The NRMP Results and Data Specialties Matching Service 2022 Appointment Year report will be released in February 2022 and will provide full details for all fellowship matches.
