Match Day 2019
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 discovered which residency programs they’ve been matched to—launching them into the next phase of their medical careers.
On Friday, March 15, 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 the University of Pennsylvania, University of Washington, Massachusetts General Hospital, and UCSF.
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.
ISMMS graduates were among 32,194 U.S. medical students who participated in this year’s Match Day—the largest match to date. The Class of 2019 will bring their accomplishments acquired in ISMMS classrooms, laboratories, and the community to more than 20 specialties, which include Internal Medicine, Emergency Medicine, Pediatrics, Psychiatry, Anesthesiology, Obstetrics and Gynecology, and General Surgery.
As ISMMS graduates were receiving their matches, the Mount Sinai Health System was extending residency offers to students from around the country. The new residents, who will arrive in July, include graduates from sixteen of the nation’s top twenty medical schools, including thirty-five ISMMS graduates who will continue their training within the Mount Sinai Health System.
The Class of 2019 continue 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.
