Match Day 2014

Match Day 2014

On March 21, 2014, seniors at Wake Forest School of Medicine learned where they will begin their careers as doctors in the annual Match Day event. Every year graduating medical students across the country simultaneously open envelopes to learn where they “matched” and will spend the next three to seven years of residency training. It’s a tradition that is followed only by medical schools and has occurred for 62 years. 

This year, 115 Wake Forest medical students, 66 men and 49 women, matched in 20 specialties. Thirty-seven students (32 percent of the graduating class of 2014) will stay in North Carolina, and 19 (16.5 percent) will be at Wake Forest for their first year.

The medical students at Wake Forest were among the more than 17,000 United States allopathic medical school seniors and 16,000 other applicants who sought residency positions through the national residency program this year, according to the National Resident Matching Program (NRMP). NRMP is a private, not-for-profit corporation established in 1952 to provide a uniform date of appointment to positions in graduate medical education (GME) in the United States.
