Match Day

Today, seventy-four students at the UConn School of Medicine participated in Match Day, a defining day in their careers. These graduating students found out where they will serve their first few years as a hospital intern and resident. It was an outstanding success for our medical students as 94.6 percent of those seeking residences were matched with some of the most prestigious programs in the country. Sixty-five percent of the class, 48 of the 74 students, were matched with residency programs in New England, with 32 remaining in Connecticut. I extend my congratulations and best wishes to the medical students as they begin the next step of their medical training.
