Residency programs roll another perfect match (w/ VIDEO)

UofL medical students open their envelopes from the NRMP to find out where they matched for their medical residencies.



Match Day for University of Louisville medical students, and others nationwide, was March 20 as they opened their envelopes from the National Residency Match Program to find where they had been matched for residency training.

Conducted annually by the NRMP, The Match uses a computerized algorithm designed to the best results by aligning the preferences of applicants with the preferences of residency programs. The results are used to fill thousands of training positions available in the United States.

The UofL Internal Medicine Residency Program completed a perfect match yet again, filling 24 categorical and 12 preliminary positions.

In addition the Combined Internal Medicine-Pediatrics Residency Program, under the direction of Laura Workman, M.D., added five new members.

"I am pleased to welcome a very talented group of new interns in internal medicine to the University of Louisville!" Jennifer Koch, M.D., FACP, Director of the UofL Internal Medicine Residency Program said. "We are very excited to have once again filled all available spots in the match with a wonderful group of young doctors. We very much look forward to welcoming them to Louisville and preparing them to begin their residency training!"

Jesse Roman, M.D., Chairman of the University of Louisville Department of Medicine, looks forward to bringing in the new class.

"We are excited to welcome our new residents into our program," Roman said. "They will quickly find that our stellar faculty are eager to usher them into this new stage of their careers."
