RUSM MEDICAL SCHOOL RESIDENCY
The process to receive your medical degree from RUSM is the same as medical schools in the United States—successful completion of the medical school curricula and clinical rotations, and passage of all three parts of the USMLE. RUSMs curriculum provides residency interview prep that fully prepares each student to move on to medical school residency with a RUSM residency match.
RUSM MEDICAL SCHOOL RESIDENCY
HOW LONG IS RESIDENCY AFTER MEDICAL SCHOOL?
Once these milestones have been achieved, RUSM students receive their Doctor of Medicine degree and embark the path to residency and residency after medical school. The traditional medical school timeline lasts approximately four years, followed by residency and fellowship training that can last an additional three to seven years or more depending on your chosen specialty.
Each year, hundreds of our graduates receive the news that they have reached their goal and matched at leading hospitals across the United States and Canada. The majority of our graduates secure residencies through the National Resident Matching Program. With more than 15,000 alumni, we’re inspired every day by the difference they are making in the world.

RUSM Match 2017
Watch the excitement of 2017
A medical residency program is designed to provide medical graduates with clinical skills they will need to practice on their own. These programs can last from three to five years with the opportunity to further specialize with a fellowship after the residency is completed.
The MATCH process officially begins at the beginning of a medical student’s fourth year. However, students start their path to residency early in their medical training. Throughout medical school, students take part in clinical rotations in different areas of medicine, which helps them determine what specialty or specialties they’d like to pursue. The culmination of this training is The MATCH process, which includes:
- Submitting applications to residency programs
- Interviewing with program teams
- Creating a Rank Order List (ROL) of preferred programs
- Waiting while the NRMP calculates results and releases them on Match Day
After residency interviews, students create a “rank-order list” of their preferred programs, and that is matched against a list of preferred candidates created by the residency programs. In mid-March during Match Week, students learn if they have been matched with one of their preferred residencies. The National Resident Matching Program (NRMP) instituted and maintains The MATCH system. The Canadian Resident Matching Service (CaRMS) is an organization that provides matching by algorithm for medical residency training throughout Canada.
While grades during medical school are definitely important, it has been determined that the top five factors for residency are:
- USMLE Step 1
- Letters of Recommendation
- MSPE (Medical Student Performance Evaluation)
- USMLE Step 2 Clinical Knowledge
- Personal Statement
