This week is Match Week (March 12-16) for the National Resident Matching Program (NRMP). During Match Week, Campbell medical students and thousands of medical school students and graduates from the United States are learning which national residency programs they will train in over the next three to seven years. In 2017, 100 percent of the School of Medicine’s graduates placed with a residency of their choice.
“Match Week is an exciting time for medical students. It is an incredible milestone for our students in achieving their aspirations of becoming physicians,” said John M. Kauffman Jr., dean. “It is a culmination of years of hard work and dedication.”
The School of Osteopathic Medicine will honor the DO Class of 2018 with a Match Day celebration on Friday. Students who applied through the National Resident Matching Program (NRMP), the American Osteopathic Association Intern/Resident Registration, and the Military Graduate Medical Education Match will open letters that reveal the residency position where they “matched” into.
Medical students, School of Medicine faculty/staff and the Campbell community will come together for the Match Day celebration at 11:30 a.m. on Friday in Leon Levine Hall of Medical Sciences.
