What's happening on campus?
Geisinger Commonwealth School of Medicine (GCSOM) announced that six fourth-year medical students at GCSOM have successfully matched into residency programs. While most of the MD Class of 2019 will learn the locations of their residency programs at noon on Friday, March 15, several "matches" occur prior to the national residency event, including for military matches and matches for specialties like ophthalmology and urology.
In the spring of his first year at Geisinger Commonwealth School of Medicine (GCSOM), medical student Scott Schoenborn was walking past a "Be the Match" table in the school lobby and decided to stop. "It was some paperwork and a cheek swab that would be used to determine a potential match for bone marrow donation. It took just a few minutes and I forgot about it soon after," he said. Eighteen months later that casual decision to stop had a huge impact on someone a continent away.
Five students and a faculty member at Geisinger Commonwealth School of Medicine (GCSOM) have published an article in the Jan. 17 edition of PeerJ, the Journal of Life and Environmental Sciences. PeerJ is a peer-reviewed, open-access journal that publishes primary research and reviews in biology, life sciences, environmental sciences and medicine.
