SUNY Downstate Medical Center students learn residency placements

Rockford medical students graduate into residency programs

The National Resident Matching Program is a non-profit organization established in 1952 at the request of medical students to provide an orderly and fair mechanism for matching the preferences of applicants for US residency positions. On Match Day, fourth-year medical students across the country find out what residency program they will be heading to after graduation from medical school.

KSAT 12 followed one of the students through the Long School of Medicine's Match Day celebration.

"Today is an extraordinary day for our institution, the state of Louisiana and most importantly for our students". Family and friends joined the CWRU class of 195 students for the event at Tinkham Veale University Center.

The new group of LSUHS residents will be welcomed to Shreveport in July, where they will train at University Health and other partner hospitals.

Russian Federation will 'of course' expel British diplomats: Lavrov
Democrats continued to insist the president remains bizarrely reticent when it comes to Russian Federation . Russian Federation has denied involvement, claiming it destroyed all Soviet-era nerve agents.

In the medical community, Match Day is viewed as a rite of passage.

Applicants who didn't get into a residency position participate in the Match Week Supplemental Offer and Acceptance Program for unfilled positions.

Medical students across the county on Friday learned where they will be performing their residency for the next three to seven years.

A computer algorithm then simultaneously takes the list of programs ranked by the student and the list of students ranked by the residency programs to fill available positions.
