Match Day 2017

Published March 17, 2017

Medical students in the University at Buffalo’s Class of 2017 learned where they will train in residency at Match Day, a rite of passage for prospective physicians.

The event was conducted March 17 at the Statler City Golden Ballroom in downtown Buffalo, the culmination of a process that began months earlier, when students interviewed at residency programs in their chosen specialties. 

From there, applicants and hospitals submitted ranked lists of their respective favorites to the National Resident Matching Program (NRMP), which uses a computerized algorithm to match future doctors to residency programs.

On Match Day, each student received a sealed letter from the NRMP. Classmates opened their envelopes simultaneously, revealing where they will pursue their medical residencies.

All 130 fourth-year medical students are listed below with their future medical specialties and the locations of their residency matches.
