Match Day

Friday, March 15, 2019

On Match Day, fourth-year medical students learn the results of their residency match status at noon. Each student will receive the envelope that contains their future and location of their residency training for the next several years.

The National Resident Matching Program® (NRMP®) is a nonprofit organization founded in 1952 by medical students seeking to standardize the residency selection process and establish a uniform date of appointment to positions in graduate medical education (GME) training programs. It is governed by a board of directors that includes representatives from national medical and medical education organizations as well as medical students, resident physicians, and GME program directors. The NRMP manages the Main Residency Match® and the Specialties Matching Service®, which includes Matches for more than 40 fellowship subspecialties.

Learn more about past residency matches at Geisinger Commonwealth School of Medicine.
