100% of College of Medicine Class of 2016 Students Find Their Match

On Friday, March 18, fourth-year College of Medicine students learned of which residency programs they will train for the next three to seven years following graduation. Staying true to the University’s mission of improving the health, economy and quality of life in Northeast Ohio, 48% of NEOMED medicine students will be staying in the region with an additional 4% matching in other regions throughout Ohio. These numbers are an increase from 2015’s successful Match Day, reflecting the progress NEOMED continues to make as the University develops physicians for and from Ohio.

Check out some of the Match Day results below, and stay tuned this week for a complete match list for the Class of 2016.

  • 100% match rate
  • 52% will remain in Ohio
  • 48% will remain in Northeast Ohio
  • 47% entering primary care
  • 18% entering internal medicine
  • 13% entering surgery and surgery subspecialties
  • 10% entering psychiatry
  • 9% entering pediatrics
  • 7% entering emergency medicine

The 129 students who participated in the NEOMED’s match program are among medical school seniors nationwide who received results of the National Resident Matching Program (NRMP). Students begin applying for residency programs at the start of their fourth year and they participate in interviews with hospital officials during the fall and winter months. Students indicate their residency preferences to the NRMP, while hospitals indicate their preference of students, and the NRMP match the two.
