Residency Placement

Residency Placement

While students share academic qualifications, it is their individual and unique qualities that add richness and texture to the University.

The UConn School of Medicine and its affiliated hospitals provide the educational and clinical resources for an extensive residency training system. The residency and fellowship programs are part of a multi-hospital network. This network includes the clinical education of medical and dental students, clinical research, and comprehensive primary and specialty care. A patient population base of over one million is drawn from central and northern Connecticut. The full spectrum of medical education experiences, from basic sciences to residency and fellowship education is provided and monitored through the University.

Match Day

Through the National Resident Matching Program (NRMP), students are assigned to a specific residency training program for the following year. Each year in March, medical schools across the country hold a ceremony known as Match Day where graduating fourth year medical students learn where they will be training in the coming years.

The following is an excerpt about the day from our Dean of Students, Dr. David Henderson.

Match Day is one of the highlights of the academic year. It is clearly the most joyous day on the academic calendar. There is very little that rivals the celebratory air that characterizes the day, and the celebration is shared by the entire medical school community. The day begins with a great atmosphere of expectation. At 1 p.m. the drama is broken by a cacophony of spontaneous expressions of delight as graduating seniors simultaneously open envelopes that reveal where they will spend the next crucial years of their lives. Match Day provides first, second, and third year students a glimpse of their own future. Faculty and family members alike share in the excitement. Match Day is the culmination of four years of hard work and uncertainty. It is the door that opens to the path to the next stage of personal and professional development for graduating seniors. It is an occasion for warm embraces and heartfelt congratulations for work well done and expressions of confidence in the achievement of expectations in the years to come.
