How common is it for graduating medical students to not get into a residency in the field of their choice?

I think it is not that common. It is more common in hard-to-match specialty such as orthopedic surgery or dermatology. It is much less common if you were trying to match into pediatrics or family medicine (I heard psychiatry has gotten more competitive recently). I think many medical students also know during medical school whether their grades on the basic sciences and the clinical rotations, along with their standardized testing scores (such as USMLE steps I And II) are competitive enough. If not t would take a year off doing research to boost their resumes. Or t will simply be guided to choose a less competitive specialty so overall I don’t think not matching is common at all. One of my friends did not match into radiology so he ended entering internal medicine and became a nephrologist instead. On the morning of match day, where in the afternoon you have the revealing ceremony about who gets matched to which academic health center and which specialty, the medical school dean gets a heads up about which students of his or her medical school did not match anywhere. Then that morning the student and the dean literally get on the phone and scramble for a spot anywhere if the student is flexible. No one wants to show up in the afternoon ceremony without an envelope in hand for the big reveal!

The PDF is also a good reference from other sources that give some of the more interesting statistics about the match. For example, from the report is this (emphasis mine): “Of the 12,569 candidates entered into the USMLE Step 2 in 2005 – 7.7 percent were not matched to a position in 2006.... The percent of matched candidates from each specialty rose from 73.4 percent in 2000 to 87.8 percent in 2005…. The matching rate did not change much from 2000 to 2004 [at 91.8 percent], either…. Match failure rates were much lower in 2006 with 0.7 percent of matched candidates failing the review process, down from 0.9 percent in 2005.” There’s good information in both the PDF and also the table of contents. Let me now provide another answer to your question — The National Resident Matching Program has two components. You will be given some questions,.
