Match Day 2016
Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai's fourth-year MD students participated in one of the most exciting days of any medical student: Match Day. The annual event—where graduating students around the country simultaneously discover which residency programs they’ve been matched to—launches students into the next steps of their medical careers.
Icahn School of Medicine's graduating medical students matched to many of the nation's most competitive residency programs including: Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center; Brigham & Women's Hospital, Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania; Yale-New Haven Hospital; Duke University Medical Center; and University of California, San Francisco Medical Center.
Matching is conducted annually by the National Resident Matching Program (NRMP)—a private, not-for-profit organization— which computerizes mathematical algorithms to align the preferences of applicants with the preferences of residency programs available at U.S. teaching hospitals.
Fifty-one students will remain within the Mount Sinai Health System, consisting of seven hospital campuses in the New York metropolitan area, to continue their training.
The ISMMS graduates were among 18,187 U.S. medical students who participated in Match Day 2016—the largest match on record. The students will bring their accomplishments in the classroom, the laboratory, and the community to more than 20 specialties—the most popular specialties of this year's graduates are Medicine, Pediatrics, Emergency Medicine, Anesthesiology, and Psychiatry.
We could not be more proud of our students, who exemplify the school's culture of mentoring, clinical excellence, commitment to the community, and achievement in biomedical research. Our students will bring these values and skills to the nation's best medical programs as they pursue the next phase in their careers. Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai has prepared them to become physicians and scientists who will advance medicine and improve the lives of countless patients.
