On March 17, SUNY Downstate Health Sciences University celebrated another successful Match Day as 188 medical students found out where they will be completing residency assignments alongside thousands of their U.S global counterparts.
Every March, medical students celebrate the hard work and dedication that allowed them to take the next steps in their medical career.
At noon, medical students nationwide opened their envelopes simultaneously, revealing their residency matches. Of SUNY Downstate graduates, 75% will stay local and remain in New York State.
Students opened their Letters of Notification from the National Resident Matching Program (NRMP) as cheers, hugs, and screams followed. After the big reveal, an on-campus ceremony took place for medical students to be accompanied by professors, mentors, family, friends, and classmates to celebrate this milestone and the next step in their medical journeys.
Top match institutions included Northwell Health, Montefiore, Mount Sinai, NYU, New York Presbyterian, Stony Brook, Strong Memorial (University of Rochester Medical Center), George Washington University, Brown University, Children’s National Medical Center, Stanford University, One Brooklyn Health, and the University of California San Francisco.
