MATCH: RUSM Grads Attain Residencies in 2016 NRMP Match

March 18, 2016

Looking for the 2016 residency list? View it here.

Congratulations to all of the Ross University School of Medicine graduates who earned residencies through the National Resident Matching Program® (NRMP) Main Residency Match this year. Our graduates matched in a variety of disciplines at teaching hospitals and centers throughout the United States.

“Our graduates earned this success,” said Joseph A. Flaherty, MD, dean and chancellor of RUSM. “They worked hard, they didn’t give up, and they embodied the qualities that make RUSM-trained physicians so special—passion, intelligence, and tenacity. I expect nothing but great things as they embark on their careers as physicians.”

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.

Last year in 2015, more residency spots—30,000+—were available through the NRMP than ever before, and more than 34,000 total applicants vied for those spots, according to the NRMP. The NRMP predicts this year’s match would be even larger than that, per its website.

The NRMP notified all candidates this past Monday, 3/14, 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.

Matched RUSM grads will begin residency training in July 2015. Now, though, it’s a time to celebrate. Tomorrow, Saturday, March 19, 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.
