Match Day 2013
In one of the most exciting days of the year for medical schools across the country, 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 class of 2013's 142 graduating students were among 17,487 U.S. medical students who participated in the 2013 Match Day event; the largest Match Day in history. 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.
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.
Match Day is the day when all the years of training and hard work come together, and we could not be more proud of this distinguished group of students who exemplify the school's culture of mentoring, clinical excellence, commitment to the community, and achievement in biomedical research. We look forward to watching our students bring the values and skills they’ve cultivated at Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai to the nation's best medical programs as they pursue the next phase in their careers. They are the next generation of physicians and scientists and will undoubtedly advance the field medicine, and improve the lives of countless patients.
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.
