Although it was a virtual celebration (“Match 2.0”), Friday, March 20, marked the day when our creative and resilient fourth-year students of the Class of 2020 learned where they will spend their next three to seven years of residency training. Our students fared exceptionally well, matching in competitive programs around the nation from Maine to California. Nearly 30 percent are staying in Massachusetts (55), with California (30), New York (21), Illinois (11), and Pennsylvania (11) as the next most popular states. The top specialties include: internal medicine (41), general surgery (24), pediatrics (15), emergency medicine (15), obstetrics/gynecology (13), family medicine (12).
The virtual celebration included video messaging from Deans from the Chobanian & Avedisian School of Medicine, including Associate Dean for Student Affairs Angela Jackson, MD, who shared via video, “It’s such a privilege to be involved in your transition from civilian to physician. You’re ready for the challenge ahead and I am just so very proud of you and for all of your hard work.” Enjoy the video below and feel free to share it with your family and friends.
