National Match Day 2016 pairs medical students with hospitals where they will serve their residencies

by EURweb editor/BJ

Early Friday morning, March 18; Match Day 2016 like so many medical schools across the nation, Charles R. Drew University of Medicine and Science (CDU) College of Medicine (COM) students, their families, and their friends nervously ate breakfast as they waited until the time counted down to 9 a.m.

What were they waiting for? Like their medical student peers across the country, they were waiting to see where they “matched” and to find out where they would complete their residency training.

The President and CEO Dr. David M. Carlisle spoke, and College of Medicine Interim Dean Daphne Calmes and Urban Underserved College Chair, Dr. Cesar Barba, took turns congratulating the medical students on reaching this milestone in their medical education.

Match Day 2016
All eyes, however, were on those envelopes distributed about 10 minutes before 9 a.m.
“Open your envelopes now!” Dean Calmes said when the countdown reached zero.

After reading their letters which told them where they would be going for the next few years, happy medical students hugged family members and friends as well as CDU faculty and staff.
CDU is pleased to announce the results of the 2016 National Resident Matching Program; Match Day 2016. First, 28 students matched. CDU will see 64% of those students match into primary care, 34% matched in to family medicine both much higher than national averages.

The rest, 36%, matched into specialties including anesthesiology, ophthalmology, orthopaedic surgery and psychiatry at hospitals ranging from UCLA and Stanford to Brigham & Women’s Hospital, a Harvard Medical School program and NYU School of Medicine.
The majority of those (78%) stayed in California, with a small percentage traveling to the East, Midwest, and the South.

“CDU is unique because of our mission.



Our students match into quality residency programs to obtain the best training possible so when they finish they will be best prepared to work in underserved areas, and under-resourced communities.

That is what attracted them to CDU in the first place,” said College of Medicine Interim Dean Daphne Calmes. “Our match results indicate that CDU continues to deliver on the Mission for which the University was created, said President Carlisle.

Dean Calmes is inspired by the story of Lyndon Gonzalez. He attended the Physician Assistant Program at CDU and went on to attend the CDU/UCLA Medical Education program and now is accepted into the Harvard Medical School residency program in Anesthesiology.

The National Resident Matching Program® (NRMP®) announced the results of the 2016 Main Residency Match® (“the Match”), the system through which United States and international medical school students and graduates obtain residency positions in U.S. accredited training programs.

The 2016 Main Residency Match; Match Day 2016 was the largest on record, encompassing 42,370 registered applicants and 30,750 positions.
The number of United States allopathic medical school senior students grew by 221 to 18,668, and the number of available first-year (PGY-1) positions rose to 27,860, 567 more than last year.
