Med Students Meet Their Match At Match Day 2017

Senior medical students in the graduating Class of 2017 at Southern Illinois University School of Medicine received results from the National Resident Matching Program (NRMP) on Friday, March 17, at the same time other U.S. medical students learned their matches to postgraduate training programs. Sixty-two SIU seniors have secured residency positions. match day

Eleven students (18%) will begin residency training in internal medicine. Ten students (16%) will enter pediatrics, nine (15%) will enter family medicine, seven (11%) will enter emergency medicine and five (8%) will specialize in psychiatry. Anesthesiology, dermatology, general surgery and radiology each attracted three (5%) students. Medicine-pediatrics, obstetrics-gynecology and preliminary surgery each attracted two (3%) students, and neurology, orthopedic surgery, physical medicine and rehabilitation and plastic surgery each attracted one student.
Six students (10%) will begin their residency training in SIU programs. An additional seven (11%) students will be training in other programs located in Illinois.

“I’m so proud of every one of our medical students as they enter the next phase of their career, post-graduate training in residency and fellowship programs,” said Jerry Kruse, MD, MSPH, SIU Medicine dean and provost. “Today’s Match Day ceremony for the Class of 2017, their teachers, colleagues, family and friends, was brimming with vigor and optimism. Our students matched into many excellent training programs across the United States. We’re looking forward to following their careers as clinicians, teachers, researchers and leaders.”
The Class of 2017 at SIU School of Medicine will graduate on Saturday, May 20. New physicians begin their residency training in July.

Match results also were announced Friday for SIU’s residency programs in Springfield, based at the School’s two affiliated hospitals – Memorial Medical Center and HSHS St. John’s Hospital. Seventy-one starting positions in Springfield were filled. The first-year residents will join more than 200 senior residents and fellows already in training at SIU programs in Springfield.

Thirty-four first-year positions were filled in primary care programs – general internal medicine (13), family medicine (10), general pediatrics (7) and obstetrics/gynecology (4). Twenty-one positions were filled in the eight surgical programs – emergency medicine (6), general surgery (4), neurological surgery (1), orthopaedic surgery (3), otolaryngology (2), plastic surgery (2), urology (2) and vascular surgery (1). Sixteen total positions were filled in other specialties – preliminary medicine (1), psychiatry (4), radiology (3), dermatology (2), medicine-psychiatry combined (2) and neurology (4).

“SIU and its affiliated hospitals continue to attract strong residents as indicated by our excellent match results again this year,” said Karen Broquet, MD, associate dean for graduate medical education. “SIU residents are integral members of the health care teams that provide quality care to patients in central and southern Illinois, and we are thrilled to welcome this talented and diverse group of residents.”
SIU also has affiliated family medicine residency programs in Carbondale, Decatur and Quincy, each three years in length. Seventeen first-year positions have been filled for next year through the NRMP match and a similar program held last month for osteopathic physicians. These residents will join 36 senior family medicine residents and fellows at SIU’s affiliated hospitals – Memorial Hospital in Carbondale, Decatur Memorial Hospital in Decatur and Blessing Hospital in Quincy.
