Match Day 2021
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 19, the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai (ISMMS) celebrated with the Class of 2021 as they discovered their matches to residency programs nationwide. For the second time in its history, the School hosted a virtual celebration, this year in the form of a fully-produced and highly energetic television show culminating with a reveal of the matches.
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.
According to the NRMP, The Match for 2021 is the largest in its history, with more than 42,000 applicants resulting in an increase in residency positions available.
The Class of 2021 will bring their accomplishments acquired in the School’s classrooms, laboratories, and the community to more than 20 specialties across the country, which include Internal Medicine, Emergency Medicine, Anesthesiology, Pediatrics, Psychiatry, Otolaryngology, Obstetrics and Gynecology, and General Surgery.
On Match Day, the Mount Sinai Health System also extended residency offers to students from across the country. The new residents, who will arrive in July, include graduates from eighteen of the nation’s top twenty medical schools, including 67 ISMMS graduates who will continue their training within the Mount Sinai Health System.
The Class of 2021 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.
