Note from Stan: Match Day Results

On Match Day we celebrated the incredibly high achievements of our graduating medical students at the Health Education Campus. We couldn’t do it without the many residents, fellows and faculty who provide inspiration and advice to our students. THANK YOU!

Our students often reference the many role models who have helped them navigate to this point, starting in the classroom with IQ facilitators and Tuesday Seminar leaders to learning the history and physical exam skills of clinical medicine with inpatient and outpatient placements to practice. Students then go off to the core clerkship rotations, where they work alongside our expert faculty and really begin to understand what a career in medicine is all about. In between, they are mentored in structured research activity and volunteer in our community far and wide, adding value to Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine.

We also give credit to our students who exceed all expectations in what they do and how they do it.

Notably, 25% will continue serving the Cleveland community through residencies at University Hospitals, Cleveland Clinic and MetroHealth Medical Center, and 29% will remain in Ohio. Many will go forth and add to the Case Western Reserve reputation with their good work in other high-ranking academic medical centers.

Top residency choices this year include internal medicine, anesthesiology, ophthalmology and emergency medicine, and 38% of the class will go into primary care specialties. Review the list of the specialties students matched. 

The excitement of Match Day reminds us all of the very important work we do in shepherding the next generation of physicians, scientists and leaders in academic medicine.

Thank you for all that you do,
