UofL medical students learn where they will continue their education as residents on Match Day.


The madness of March wasn't confined to the basketball court as the thrill and excitement lent itself to the realm of medical education.

March 18 was Match Day for University of Louisville medical students, and others nationwide, as they opened their envelopes from the National Residency Match Program to find where they had been matched for their future training as residents.

"I am so happy to welcome this class into our residency program," Jennifer Koch, M.D., FACP, Director of the UofL Internal Medicine Residency Program said. "We are excited to have recruited excellent candidates from both here at the University of Louisville as well as from multiple other institutions. I look forward to working with this diverse and outstanding group of interns!"

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 11 preliminary positions.

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

"Our residency training program is second to none," Jesse Roman, M.D., FACP, FACCP, Chairman of the University of Louisville Department of Medicine said. "Faculty and staff are committed to delivering the best training possible, while providing a home to our trainees. The Class of 2019 will witness great changes in medicine and healthcare. It is our mission to generate top internists capable of confronting these changes, but also driving improvements in healthcare delivery, medical education, and research; all while providing compassionate care to those in need."
