On Friday, March 16, 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 Johns Hopkins Hospital, Massachusetts General Hospital, UCSF Medical Center, Brigham and Women’s Hospital, and Penn Medicine.
The Match 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 teaching hospitals across the nation.
Thirty-four graduates will continue their training within the Mount Sinai Health System, which consists of seven hospitals in the New York City area with an eighth addition on the horizon.
ISMMS graduates were among 18,818 U.S. medical students who participated in this year’s Match Day—the largest match to date. The Class of 2018 will bring their accomplishments acquired in ISMMS classrooms, laboratories, and the community to more than 20 specialties, which include Internal Medicine, Emergency Medicine, Obstetrics and Gynecology, Pediatrics, Anesthesiology, Psychiatry, Family Medicine, and Neurology.
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 of the nation’s top medical schools, among them Harvard, Stanford, Johns Hopkins, the University of Pennsylvania, Columbia, and New York University.
As the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai celebrates its 50th anniversary, we could not be more proud of our students, who exemplify the School's culture of innovation, mentoring, clinical excellence, commitment to the community, and progressive 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.
