In a celebratory tradition known as “Match Day,” 139 Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai students matched to some of the nation’s most competitive residency programs, including Massachusetts General Hospital; Yale-New Haven Hospital; Johns Hopkins University Hospital; Duke University Medical Center; Vanderbilt University; University of California, San Francisco Medical Center; and Stanford University. Thirty-nine students will remain at Mount Sinai to continue their training.

The students will bring their accomplishments in the classroom, the laboratory, and the community to more than 20 areas, with the most popular being Internal Medicine, Anesthesiology, Pediatrics, Emergency Medicine, and General Surgery. More than half of Mount Sinai’s students matched to the nation’s top 20 academic medical centers, including Mount Sinai.

“The Class of 2013 embodies Mount Sinai’s entrepreneurial spirit and our leadership in research and innovative patient care,” said Dennis S. Charney, MD, Anne and Joel Ehrenkranz Dean of the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai and Executive Vice President for Academic Affairs at The Mount Sinai Medical Center. “I am confident this distinguished group of students will make an indelible mark on the practice of medicine.”

Graduates from prestigious programs including University of California at San Francisco School of Medicine, Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania, Washington University in St. Louis School of Medicine, Duke University School of Medicine, University of Chicago Pritzker School of Medicine, and Stanford University School of Medicine have been matched to Mount Sinai as well.

The National Resident Matching Program (NRMP) is a private, not-for-profit organization that conducts the annual Match by using a computerized mathematical algorithm to align the preferences of applicants with the preferences of residency programs available at U.S. teaching hospitals. NRMP reports that more than 17,487 U.S. medical school seniors participated in Match Day this year.
