SIU Med Students, Residency Programs Meet Their Match

March 15, 2019

Senior medical students in the graduating Class of 2019 at Southern Illinois University School of Medicine received results from the National Resident Matching Program (NRMP) on Friday, March 15, at the same time other U.S. medical students learned their matches to postgraduate training programs. Sixty-three SIU seniors have secured residency positions.

View the list of students, hometowns, residency locations and specialties. Pictures of individual students are available upon request.

Ten students (16%) will specialize in family medicine, and nine (14%) will specialize in internal medicine, and six students (10%) will begin residencies in radiology. Five (8%) will go into emergency medicine, five (8%) will specialize in obstetrics-gynecology and five (8%) will specialize it anesthesiology. General surgery attracted four students (6%), and pediatrics, plastic surgery and orthopedic surgery each attracted three students (5%). Surgery-preliminary, radiation oncology, dermatology, psychiatry, neurology, neurodevelopmental disabilities, neurosurgery, medicine-pediatrics, pathology, and physical medicine & rehabilitation each attracted one student (2%).

Fifteen (24%) of the 63 students will begin training at SIU-affiliated programs.

“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 2019, 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 2019 at SIU School of Medicine will graduate on Saturday, May 18. 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-eight 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-eight first-year positions were filled in general and preliminary internal medicine (16), family medicine (10), general pediatrics (8) and obstetrics/gynecology (4). Twenty-three positions were filled in the eight surgical programs – emergency medicine (8), general surgery (4), neurological surgery (1), orthopaedic surgery (3), otolaryngology (2), plastic surgery (2), urology (2) and vascular surgery (1). Seventeen total positions were filled in other specialties, psychiatry (6), radiology (3), dermatology (3), medicine-psychiatry combined (2) and neurology (3).

“SIU School of Medicine and our partner hospitals in central and southern Illinois continue to match with a robust, accomplished and eclectic group of residents,” said Karen Broquet, MD, associate dean for graduate medical education. “SIU residents are an intrinsic element in the clinical learning environment and interprofessional health care teams that provide quality and patient-centered care to patients.”

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.

Established in 1970, the mission of SIU School of Medicine is to assist the people of central and southern Illinois in meeting their health needs through education, patient care, research and community service. An international leader in medical education, the school is based in Carbondale and Springfield and is specifically oriented to educating new physicians prepared to practice in Illinois. Since opening, more than 2,800 physicians have graduated from its program. For more information, visit www.siumed.edu.
