Resident match statistics released

National data from the 2001 resident match show 14.9 percent of U.S. medical school graduates entering family practice--the lowest percentage since 1995. Twenty-five percent of graduates will enter internal medicine residences, a decline of 1.5 percent since last year.

About 13 percent will enter pediatrics, a field that has had a gradual increase over the past few years. This year, increasing numbers of graduates entered anesthesiology (up 5.8 percent), pathology (up 8.1 percent).
