Match Day for CWRU medical students

It was a big day for UH med school students when they found out what residency programs they were matched with

Temple and St. Luke's medical students joined two local Allentown residents in learning where they'll go on to practice medicine.

More than 100 Emory students gathered at noon for the highly anticipated Match Day ceremony, joining thousands of USA medical school seniors participating in ceremonies nationwide, to learn where they will spend their years of residency training following graduation.

March 16 is Match Day.

"Today is an extraordinary day for our institution, the state of Louisiana and most importantly for our students".

Once again this year, US medical students gravitated more significantly toward surgical specialties than primary care positions such as pediatrics and family medicine. "I am confident each one of them will represent LSU Health Shreveport well strengthening our legacy of successful medical education", said Chancellor and School of Medicine Dean, Dr. G.E. Ghali.

The less competitive primary-care specialties were mostly filled by graduates of worldwide medical schools and osteopathic medical schools, this year's match data shows.

The TTUHSC students are among thousands of medical school graduates from across the country that will open envelopes simultaneously to reveal the location where they will complete their residency.

Prior to today's NRMP match, three Emory graduating seniors had matched into military residencies, four students had matched in Urology, and nine students had matched in Ophthalmology. The fourth year medical students applied and interviewed for residency program positions, months ago.
