Marshall University Joan C. Edwards School of Medicine students 'match' for future training
"We are delighted that our soon-to-be graduates have matched at dynamic programs across the United States," said Dr. Marie Veitia, associate dean of student affairs. "The Class of 2014 has distinguished itself with students matching into highly competitive specialties like dermatology, emergency medicine, orthopedic surgery and ophthalmology, in addition to prestigious programs in primary care."
Just over 43 percent of the class members are entering into primary care fields like family medicine, pediatrics, and internal medicine. Additionally, about one-third of the class will stay in West Virginia for their training, 11 of them at Marshall. Five students matched into psychiatry residencies which is the highest number of students in the history of the school to have chosen that specialty. Six Marshall seniors also matched earlier this year in the U.S. Military Match.
The NRMP reports that 16,399 U.S. allopathic medical school seniors matched to first-year residency positions. The match 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.
