Our students excelled on Match Day

Our students excelled on Match Day

Author: Employee Communications/Wednesday, March 23, 2016/Categories: NewsNews

"Why is this envelope so difficult to open!" thought Chen Yan as she eagerly tore at the paper that would disclose where she would spend the next several years of her training. Then the reveal: Cleveland Clinic. “I was absolutely overjoyed to match at my number one program,” says Chen, who will be training in neurology. 

On March 18, Lerner College of Medicine students experienced “Match Day,” the day they learned where they’re headed for residency. All of our graduating students matched, with 58 percent going to their first-choice program and 74 percent going to one of their top three choices.

Several graduates are headed to Seattle. “I couldn’t be more thrilled to be continuing my journey with the Seattle Children’s residency or more thankful for everyone who has supported me at CCLCM,” says Jen Keene, who will be training in child neurology. 

Cris Loftus is also headed to Seattle. “The University of Washington offers one of the best urologic surgical training programs in the country, and I feel so fortunate to have matched there. Five years of hard work were definitely worth the result!” he says.

The top residency program chosen by our students this year is Internal Medicine, followed by Medicine-Preliminary. Of the program’s 31 students, 12 are staying in Ohio for their residencies, and 11 of those students will remain at Cleveland Clinic. 

Destinations for the 2016 graduates include such prestigious organizations as Cleveland Clinic; Massachusetts General; New York-Presbyterian; Stanford Health Care; University of California, Los Angeles; and Yale-New Haven Hospital.

Across the country, the number of graduating medical students is in inverse proportion to the number of residency slots available, so matching to these top organizations is an enormous accomplishment and doesn’t happen without tremendous faculty support.

The Lerner College of Medicine graduating class will be honored by their families, faculty, staff and fellow students on Saturday, May 14, at 6 p.m. at the InterContinental Hotel. A reception will follow after the ceremony. The students will formally graduate on Sunday, May 15, from Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine, at which time they will receive their degree that reads “Medical Doctor with Special Qualifications in Biomedical Research.”

“While I'm ecstatic so many of my classmates are going to wonderful programs, there's a bittersweet feeling as we scatter across the country,” says Chen. “I feel like we've lived in a little bubble at CCLCM, and now the bubble is being expanded."Why is this envelope so difficult to open!" thought Chen Yan as she eagerly tore at the paper that would disclose where she would spend the next several years of her training.
