Match Day is an exciting time for graduating seniors, their families, and the faculty who have been with these students since the beginning of their medical school careers

VALHALLA, NY – March 16, 2018 –Today at noon, seniors at New York Medical College (NYMC), along with graduating medical students across the nation, found out where they were matched to medical residency programs. Conducted annually by the National Residency Matching Program (NRMP), the Match uses a computer algorithm to match the preferences of applicants with the preferences of residency programs, in order to fill the available training positions at U.S. teaching hospitals.

This year, NYMC students were matched and will be headed to nationally leading hospitals such as Massachusetts General, Johns Hopkins, Yale-New Haven, Northwestern, Stanford, UCSF, and Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, as well as NYMC’s major academic partner, Westchester Medical Center Health Network’s Westchester Medical Center and Maria Fareri Children’s Hospital.

NYMC students were matched to residency programs in internal medicine, pediatrics, anesthesiology, emergency medicine, family medicine and radiology, as well as specialty programs such as orthopedic surgery, dermatology, radiation oncology child psychiatry and neurological surgery.

“Match Day is an exciting time for graduating seniors, their families, and the faculty who have been with these students since the beginning of their medical school careers,” said Gladys M. Ayala, M.D., M.P.H., interim vice dean, School of Medicine. “We are very proud of the impressive residencies secured by our students and wish them the very best in this next chapter of their careers as medical professionals.”

The top career choices for the NYMC School of Medicine Class of 2018 were pediatrics, internal medicine, and emergency medicine.

Students will be training in 30 states across the country at 126 different institutions from Arizona, Washington and California to Iowa, Ohio, Pennsylvania and Vermont.  Thirty-eight percent of students will remain in New York for their residency training.  Other popular states include  Florida, Massachusetts, Connecticut and Rhode Island.
