Match Day 2022
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 18, the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai (ISMMS) celebrated with the Class of 2022 as they discovered their matches to residency programs nationwide. The School hosted a hybrid celebration, beginning with a fully-produced and highly energetic television show, culminating with a reveal of the matches and a carnival-themed after party.
The Icahn School of Medicine’s graduating medical students matched to many of the nation's most competitive residency programs, including the University of Pennsylvania, Johns Hopkins, Brigham and Women’s Hospital, and Washington University.
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. While the number of total applications for the 2022 Match decreased this year by 2.1 percent, the number of first-year (PGY-1) positions expanded to 36,277, which was a 3.1 percent increase over last year—the largest numbers on record.
The Class of 2022 will bring their accomplishments acquired in the School’s classrooms, laboratories, and the community to more than 25 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 557 new residents, who will arrive in July, include graduates from sixteen of the nation’s top twenty medical schools, including 52 ISMMS graduates who will continue their training within the Mount Sinai Health System.
The Class of 2022 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.
