Florida State University College of Medicine announces Match Day results

Lynette PayneMar 17, 2018

This is they day they learn their residency placement.

Whether it's in Chicago or across the country in Los Angeles, each student committed to three to seven years of perfecting their craft in family medicine, pediatrics, neurological surgery and much more. "Emory has been so fortunate to have these students as part of our community", says J. William Eley, MD, MPH, executive associate dean for medical education and student affairs, Emory University School of Medicine.

Other students matched today in emergency medicine, general surgery, psychiatry, anesthesiology, orthopedic surgery, neurology, otolaryngology, child neurology, diagnostic radiology, ophthalmology, plastic surgery, radiation oncology and urology.

On Friday, a multitude of those students' lives were changed when they got to open an envelope that revealed their match to a medical residency program.

Once again this year, USA medical students gravitated more significantly toward surgical specialties than primary care positions such as pediatrics and family medicine. USA medical students filled less than 45 percent of those residencies.

Matches are determined by the National Resident Match Program which uses a complex algorithm to determine who goes where.

It may be a far cry from March Madness, but based on the crowds at UConn Medical Center Friday, you'd never be able to tell they were actually gathered for "Match Madness".
