Fifty-three percent of the College of Medicine’s graduating class will remain in Ohio for their residencies, 29 percent of which will stay in NEOMED’s hospital partners, and 44 percent of graduates will continue their training in a primary- care field such as family practice, internal medicine, pediatrics or obstetrics/gynecology.

These students will continue their training in residencies:

The 107 students from the College of Medicine’s Class of 2013 who participated in the match program are among medical school seniors nationwide who received results of the National Resident Matching Program.

Students began applying for residency programs at the beginning of their senior year and participated in interviews with hospital officials during the fall and winter months.

Students indicated their residency preferences to the NRMP, hospitals indicated their preference of students, and the NRMP matched the two.
