Match Day 2017
The 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. Graduating students around the country simultaneously discover which residency programs they’ve been matched to—launching them into the next phase of their medical careers.
The Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai's (ISMMS) graduating medical students matched to many of the nation's most competitive residency programs including: University of California, San Francisco Medical Center; the University of Washington; Duke University Medical Center; the University of Pennsylvania; and Columbia University 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.
Thirty graduates will remain within the Mount Sinai Health System, consisting of seven hospital campuses in the New York metropolitan area, to continue their training.
ISMMS graduates were among 18,539 U.S. medical students who participated in Match Day 2017—the largest match to date. This year’s graduates will bring their accomplishments in the classroom, the laboratory, and the community to more than 20 specialties; the most popular specialties are: Internal Medicine, Emergency Medicine, Pediatrics, Family Medicine, General Surgery, and Orthopedic Surgery.
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. The 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.
