CINCINNATI—UC’s graduating medical students got a peek into their future Thursday during the annual Match Day celebration. This event is when students find out where they’ve matched for residency—the next stage in their medical careers.
Of the 156 graduating medical students, 53 (34 percent) will remain in the Tristate for their residency positions, with 20 students matching at UC Health University Hospital and nine at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center. Two students will go to St. Elizabeth Medical Center in Edgewood, Ky., nine to Jewish Hospital, 11 to Christ Hospital and two to Good Samaritan Hospital.
Nearly half of the students will remain in Ohio.
The most popular specialties among UC students were internal medicine, pediatrics, surgery and family medicine.
According to the National Residency Matching Program (NRMP), the organization responsible for keeping the match organized and fair, 2011 was once again a year of growth for matches in family medicine residencies. Get details on the national match.
