The 129 students from NEOMED’s College of Medicine Class of 2016 who participated in the match program are among medical school seniors nationwide who received results of the National Resident Matching Program (NRMP). Students began applying for residency programs at the beginning of their fourth 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.
