On March 19, 2021, senior medical students at the USA College of Medicine learned where they will be beginning their residency training. The annual event – coined Match Day – serves as a landmark day in a medical student’s career.
After interviewing with residency programs across the nation, this year all virtually, students rank their top-choice programs in order of preference. Training programs, in turn, rank the students who interviewed. The National Resident Matching Program then uses a mathematical algorithm to designate each applicant into a residency program. Nationally, 48,700 applicants competed for 35,194 residency positions.
The USA College of Medicine Class of 2021 matched in 19 states, with 43 students matching out-of-state and 24 students matching in the state of Alabama. Of those students matching in Alabama, 17 will be residents at USA Health hospitals.
"At the USA College of Medicine, we are proud to be able to host an in person Match Day ceremony for the Class of 2021, limited to the students, so that each student can honor the tradition of pinning the Match Day map as classes have done in the past," said Kelly Roveda, M.D., associate dean for student affairs.
"Since families and friends cannot aggregate on campus with our students, the event will be live-streamed for families, friends, and the remainder of our USA family who typically attends. As in the past, we are extremely proud of our students’ successes in securing excellent residency positions. Our students’ successes reflect years of hard work on their part and also speak to the quality of the educational training provided to them here in the College of Medicine at the University of South Alabama."
