Just curious why surgery prelim program is often unmatched every year? What is the drawback in choosing this program?

These programs usually offer no future by itself. You got to find advanced specialty. Most advanced specialties that require preliminary year, can also be satisfied with a transitional year or prelim in IM. Prelim surgery residents are in much tougher conditions, so most students choose transitional.
