Match Day 2017
Match Day Madness
March 17th, 2017
. . . 11:57 . . . 11:58 . . . 11:59 . . . 12:00!
At exactly 12:00PM, medical students from Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine joined their colleagues around the country in a special, exhilarating moment: racing for the Match Day envelopes that would tell them where they would spend the next years of their training.
After all the waiting, clock-watching, and envelope ripping, 196 soon-to-be-MDs discovered their fates. This year, they had much to be excited about:
- 23% matched to top programs throughout the United States, including at Cleveland Clinic, Mayo Clinic, Johns Hopkins Hospital, Massachusetts General, and NewYork-Presbyterian.
- 20% will continue serving the Cleveland community through residencies at University Hospitals, Cleveland Clinic, and Metrohealth Medical Center. Several more will remain in Ohio.
- 37% are entering primary care specialties.
As a class, their top residency choices included internal medicine, emergency medicine, ophthalmology, orthopaedic surgery, and radiology.
A HUGE congratulations to all our matching students, their families, and all those who helped them along the way!
