Match Day 2023
The Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai's graduating MD class participated in one of the most exciting days for any medical student: Match Day. Across the country, graduating students simultaneously discover which residency programs they’ve been matched—launching them into the next phase of their medical careers.
On Friday, March 17, the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai celebrated with the Class of 2023 as they discovered their matches to residency programs nationwide. Under the leadership of the Office of Student Affairs, the graduating class was able to unite in-person on Match Day to celebrate this landmark milestone together.
The National Resident Matching Program (NRMP) conducts the Main Residency Match annually through mathematical algorithms to align the preferences of applicants with the preferences of residency programs available at teaching hospitals across the nation. NRMP reported the 2023 Match as being a record-breaking year, with 42,952 applications overall, with 34,822 of those matching to a first-year position (PGY-1)—an increase of 1.0 percentage point over last year.
The Class of 2023 received their Match results in personalized bottles at this year’s celebration. The graduates matched to many of the nation's most competitive residency programs, including the University of California San Francisco (UCSF), Johns Hopkins, Brigham and Women’s Hospital, and Washington University. They will bring their accomplishments acquired in the School’s classrooms, laboratories, and the community to more than 22 specialties across the country, which include Anesthesiology, Emergency Medicine, General Surgery, Internal Medicine, Neurological Surgery, Obstetrics and Gynecology, Otolaryngology, and Psychiatry.
On Match Day, the Mount Sinai Health System also extended residency offers to students from across the country. The 512 new residents, who will arrive in July, include graduates from some of the top twenty medical schools in the United States, including 55 ISMMS graduates who will continue their training within the Mount Sinai Health System.
The Class of 2023 continues to exemplify the School's culture of innovation, mentoring, clinical excellence, commitment to the community, and progressive biomedical research; they will bring these values and skills to the nation's best medical programs as they pursue the next phase in their careers.
