Future MU Doctors Learn Residency Status
"Congratulations to our soon-to-be graduates. We share their excitement as they prepare to go on in their training," said Dr. Joseph I. Shapiro, dean of the Joan C. Edwards School of Medicine. "We are gratified to see our Marshall students maintain a strong commitment to primary care."
Just over 55 percent of graduating seniors will enter fields defined as primary care in West Virginia - family medicine, internal medicine, obstetrics/gynecology, internal medicine/pediatrics and pediatrics - continuing Marshall's mission of educating physicians for the nation's rural areas. Additionally, about 40 percent of the class will remain in West Virginia, with 25 new doctors training at Marshall.
Dr. Marie Veitia, assistant dean of student affairs, said this year's match is a strong one for Marshall students.
"We are delighted that our students matched into highly competitive fields of medicine such as anesthesiology, radiology, orthopaedics and ophthalmology at programs across the country," Veitia said. "Marshall students are heading to programs at Yale, Wake Forest and the University of California-Davis."The National Residency Matching Program connects graduating seniors with graduate medical programs across the country using an algorithm which pairs the preferences of applicants with the preferences of residency programs resulting in a best result for graduating students.
