College of Pharmacy Students Match at High Rate

Congratulations to the 32 students from the College of Pharmacy Class of 2020 who have matched for residencies!

NEOMED students were matched at hospitals throughout Northeast Ohio, including University Hospitals - Geauga Medical Center, Cleveland Clinic and Cleveland Clinic Akron General, MetroHealth Medical Center and Summa Health System. NEOMED students also matched at ProMedica Toledo Hospital & Children’s Hospital, as well as at Nationwide Children’s Hospital in Columbus.

The pharmacy students will celebrate with a virtual event Thursday, April 23.

This year’s NEOMED grads matched at a success rate 24 percent higher than the national average for Post-Graduate Year One (PGY1) residencies. Selections were made through the recent American Society of Health-System Pharmacists (ASHP) Residency Matching Program.

Seven NEOMED College of Pharmacy alumni (from the Classes of 2018 and 2019) pursued specialized Post-Graduate Year Two (PGY2) training programs this year. The pharmacists had a 100% success rate, placing in programs for critical care, emergency medicine, psychiatry and pharmacy informatics.
