These two words are, perhaps, the most important words in the vocabulary of a medical student. Match Day is a term used widely in the graduate medical education community to represent the day when the National Resident Matching Program or NRMP releases results to applicants seeking residency and fellowship training positions in the United States.
Medical students rank order their preferences of where they want to spend the next three to five years as a resident. Residency programs, meaning hospitals, rank who they want to bring into their programs. These get thrown into a computer program and BLAM. Fates are decided.
Match Day for residents has more drama than Tevye could have dreamed of in Fiddler on the Roof.
KSB Hospital is thrilled to welcome into the KSB Family two Family Medicine Residents through our partnership with The University of Illinois, as well as two Podiatry Residents.
Welcome to the team… thanks to the Matchmaker.
