Emergency medicine saw a record number of initially unfilled spots in the NRMP Match 2023 - so many, in fact, that it became national news. What happened? What is the resident viewpoint? And most important: Where do we go from here? EMRA President Jessica Adkins Murphy, MD, sits down for a special fireside chat with host Chris Reilly, MD.

  • The factors that led to Match 2023 are neither simple nor singular - it is a nuanced landscape that requires a collaborative effort in emergency medicine.
