One hundred fourteen fourth-year medical students discovered their fate on Friday, March 16, 2012, at the annual Match Day ceremony. Family and friends looked on as each member of the College of Medicine’s senior class revealed in random fashion where he or she would spend the next few years completing residency training.
Forty-nine students, 43% of the class, will stay in Nebraska. Forty-five of those students will complete their first year of residency at UNMC; two at Creighton University and its affiliates; and two with the Lincoln Medical Education Partnership.
Neighboring states were well represented: Colorado, 4; Iowa, 4; Kansas, 5; Missouri, 4; and South Dakota, 4. The remainder of the class will sprawl across the nation in states such as Arizona, California, Tennessee, Washington, and the District of Columbia
Sixty-six students, 58% of the class, will complete their first year training in Primary Care. Internal Medicine programs accepted 22 UNMC students.
