The 2016 Match

On Friday, March 18, medical students around the country opened their Match envelopes to find out where they would spend the next phase of their career: residency. Pritzker students gathered in our auditorium for a celebratory ceremony, and at 11:01 am CDT, the hall filled with the sounds of envelopes being ripped open—followed by a chorus of cheers. The most popular specialties chosen this year by Pritzker students were Internal Medicine (24), Emergency Medicine, Orthopaedic Surgery, and Psychiatry (5 each), and Dermatology, Family Medicine, and Urology (4 each).

Pritzker students will be traveling to all reaches of the country for their residency training. The hospitals accepting the most Pritzker recruits to their categorical/advanced programs were University of Chicago Medical Center and University of Chicago/NorthShore University HeathSystem (21), the University of California affiliated-programs (9), Northwestern University (7), and Harvard-affiliated programs (6).

Congrats, Class of 2016!
