Match Day a success once again
U of L Internal Medicine Residency Program throws another perfect game.
It's "Match Madness" all over again.
Match Day for University of Louisville medical students, and others nationwide, was March 15 as they opened their envelopes from the National Residency Match Program to find where they had been matched for residency training.
The U of L Internal Medicine Residency Program completed a perfect match yet again, filling 23 categorical and 11 preliminary positions.
"It was a very successful match day for the University of Louisville students!" Dr. Barbara Casper, director of the U of L Internal Medicine Residency Program said. "In addition, the internal medicine training program had an outstanding match. Each of our positions were filled in the matching process and our new intern class will be one of our most academically gifted. We are looking forward to having a very successful year!"
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.
