Match Day 2015.
Wednesday, April 8, 2015
Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai's fourth-year MD students participated in one of the most exciting days in the academic career of any medical student today: Match Day. The annual event, in which graduating medical students discover what residency programs they matched to, occurs at the same date and time at every medical school in the country.
Icahn School of Medicine's 129 graduating medical students matched to many of the nation's most competitive residency programs including: Massachusetts General Hospital; Brigham & Women's Hospital, Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania; Yale-New Haven Hospital; Duke University Medical Center; and University of California, San Francisco Medical Center.
Thirty-seven students will remain within the Mount Sinai Health System, consisting of seven hospital campuses in the New York metropolitan area, to continue their training.
Graduates from the class of 2015 were among 18,025 U.S. medical students who participated in the 2015 Match Day event. The students will bring their accomplishments in the classroom, the laboratory, and the community to more than 20 specialties. The most popular amongst this year's graduates are Internal Medicine, Anesthesiology, Pediatrics, Emergency Medicine, and General Surgery.
We could not be more proud of our students, who exemplify the school's culture of mentoring, clinical excellence, commitment to the community, and achievement in biomedical research. Our students will bring these values and skills to the nation's best medical programs as they pursue the next phase in their careers. Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai has prepared them to become physicians and scientists who will advance medicine, and improve the lives of countless patients.
The National Resident Matching Program (NRMP) is a private, not-for-profit organization that conducts the annual Match by using a computerized mathematical algorithm to align the preferences of applicants with the preferences of residency programs available at U.S. teaching hospitals.
