Match Day 2013
Match Day 2012
The drama of Match Day moved to Whipple Auditorium this year, where both tension and spirits were high.
Judging by the smiles and yells at 12:01 p.m. Friday, March 16, the Class of 2012 was happy with the match results, said David R. Lambert, the School’s senior associate dean for medical student education.
One hundred and four members of the Class of 2012 matched. In that group, 25 will complete training at the University of Rochester Medical Center and 39 will complete training in New York State. Rochester students matched to programs in 23 of the states and District of Columbia. The top specialty choices in the class were:Â Internal medicine (22), Pediatrics (13), Anesthesia (9), Obstetrics and Gynecology (8) and General surgery (7) and Emergency medicine (7).
More than 95 percent of U.S. medical school seniorsâ€”the highest rate in 30 yearsâ€”matched to residency positions according to new data released today by the National Resident Matching Program. Of the applicants from U.S. school who matched, 81.6 percent matched to one of their top three choices.Â More than 56 percent of U.S. students matched to their first choice. Another 15.6 percent matched to their second choice and 9.5 percent their third.
