It's A Match for School of Medicine Class 2019 

On Friday, March 15, four years of rigorous study and unrelenting work paid off in spades for the School of Medicine (SOM) Class of 2019 during Match Day, when they opened their envelopes at noon and learned where they were matched to medical residency programs-and where they will begin their careers as physicians. According to Jerry L. Nadler, M.D., MACP, FAHA, FACE, dean of the School of Medicine and professor of medicine and pharmacology, Match Day 2019 was a resounding success for New York Medical College (NYMC) students. "This is one of the most meaningful days for our students as they move toward becoming the outstanding physicians of tomorrow," he said. "We are very proud of the quality and breadth of the residencies that our medical students have secured." Read the full article and view the Match Day photo gallery. View the Match Day results.
