Recruitment to Rural Residency Programs: Match Rates and Best Practices


This study explores the history of National Residency Matching Program (NRMP) match rates for rurally located family medicine residency programs over the past 25 years (1995-2020) in an effort to examine the widely held perception that low match rates equate to unfavorable program outcomes and to identify successful recruitment strategies for rural programs and for recruitment to rural practice generally. This study was conducted by the Collaborative for Rural Primary care Research, Education, and Practice (Rural PREP), a HRSA-funded project of the University of Washington, Ohio University, and the University of North Dakota.
