MATCH: RUSM Grads Earn Residencies Throughout the United States

March 20, 2015

Congratulations to all of the Ross University School of Medicine graduates who earned residencies through the National Resident Matching Program® (NRMP) this year. For most medical school students, Match Week is the culmination not only of a lengthy and competitive application process, but also of the lifelong dream of becoming a physician—a dream all of our graduates share. You earned this.

“I’m of course proud of our graduates, but I’m not surprised by their success,” says Joseph A. Flaherty, MD, Dean and Chancellor of RUSM. “Our students all possess a rare mix of intelligence, ambition, and tenacity—traits that will serve them well as they embark on their careers in medicine.”

Residency, though still considered a training period, marks a medical school graduate’s first real step into the physician workforce. Under supervision from attending physicians, new residents spend most of their time training in their matched teaching hospitals, gaining in-depth, hands-on working knowledge of their chosen medical discipline, whether it’s internal medicine, surgery, or pediatrics.

This year, more residency spots—30,000+—were available through the NRMP than ever before. Half of the added 600 residency spots were in family medicine, internal medicine, and pediatrics specialties.

The NRMP notified all candidates Monday, 3/16, whether or not they’d actually matched. For those who did, this week has been a waiting game—until today—to find out where, and in which programs. And today, RUSM graduates logged in to the NRMP database to see where they’d matched.

Matched RUSM grads will begin residency training in July 2015. Now, though, it’s a time to celebrate. Tomorrow, Saturday, March 21, newly minted residents from RUSM will join family, friends, and fellow new residents in New York, Chicago, and Miami to come together and reflect on what they’ve accomplished.

Keep checking back in the coming weeks for more information.
