Students Find Their “Match”

At exactly 12:00 p.m. today, medical students from around the nation – including those at Case Western Reserve University – received envelopes in which they learned where they will spend the next years of their training.

Top residency choices this year for Case Western Reserve medical students include internal medicine, emergency medicine, ophthalmology, orthopaedic surgery and radiology.

Thirty-seven percent of the class will go into primary care specialties.

Twenty percent of our graduates will continue serving the Cleveland community through residencies at University Hospitals, Cleveland Clinic and MetroHealth Medical Center, and 26 percent will remain in Ohio.

As in years past, our 196 students matched at top programs throughout the United States. Twenty-three percent of the class matched to residencies at top-ranked hospitals, such as:

Cleveland Clinic, Mayo Clinic, Johns Hopkins Hospital, Massachusetts General, and New York Presbyterian Hospital-Weill Cornell Medical Center.

“As in the past, this year’s match results demonstrate the excellence of our students and the strength of our program, said Pamela Davis, MD, PhD, dean of Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine. “We are proud to have our students recognized by top programs across the nation.”
