SUNY Upstate Medical University students get matched with residency programs on nationwide Match Day

At noon on Thursday, March 22, 149 fourth-year students from SUNY Upstate Medical University’s College of Medicine joined 23,981 graduating medical students from across the country in learning where they will spend their first year of training (or residency) in their chosen specialty.

This annual rite of passage, known as Match Day, was established in 1952 by the National Resident Matching Program of the Association of American Medical Colleges. The matching program provides an orderly and fair way to match the preferences of applicants for U.S. residency positions with the residency program’s choice of applicants. It also provides a common time for the announcement of the appointments, as well as an agreement for programs and applicants to honor the commitment to offer and accept an appointment if a match results.
