Tables of Match Results for Each Residency:

These tables show the number of applicants matching to each Anesthesiology Residency via the various routes provided by the NRMP. The first four numerical columns show the critical values: the positions made available and filled for the CA1 and PG1 years. For most programs these columns sum to make the totals in the final two columns. This is because there are very few people matching into anesthesiology either in the Physician category or via the PG1 Preliminary Match.
