Graduating medical students matched with residency programs

This year, 156 graduating seniors from the School of Medicine received their residency appointments through the National Residency Matching Program (NRMP). Many participated in the annual Match Day ritual on March 17 in the lobby of the UW Health Sciences Center. They were among 14,700 students applying for residency positions nationwide through the NRMP.

Of the UW students, 69 were matched with programs in greater Seattle hospitals. Forty-three were assigned to UW-affiliated hospitals. Seven students were assigned to WWAMI region programs, including Sacred Heart Medical Center and Deaconess Medical Center in Spokane; Family Practice Residency of Idaho and the Veterans Affairs Medical Center, both in Boise; and the Alaska Family Practice in Anchorage.

The specialties in which the highest number of students matched this year were family practice, 20 matches; anesthesiology, 18; traditional internal medicine, 18; pediatrics, 16; and emergency medicine, 14.

The number of first-year family practice positions available nationwide through the matching program continues to decline, from 3,183 positions in 2000 to 2,761 positions in 2005.
