2019 Match Day

Medicine

Message From the Internal Medicine Residency Program Director

E. Benjamin Clyburn, M.D.

We are delighted to announce the results of the Department of Medicine 2019 Categorical, Med/Peds, Med/Psych, and Preliminary Match. The results were fantastic! Thank you to everyone who helped make the 2019-2020 recruitment season another success. We filled all 25 categorical positions and four preliminary positions with excellent candidates. We also filled four Medicine/Pediatrics and two Medicine/Psychiatry spots through the Match.

Our new residents come from geographically diverse locations, representing 17 different medical schools. The class is outstanding, especially given that the competition for positions was greater this year than ever before.

Please join me in welcoming our new incoming residents for the 2019-2020 year highlighted below.
