The National Residency Matching Program (NRMP) results are in and the graduating class of the UT College of Medicine and Life Sciences did very well. Our UTCOM 2014 match rate was 97.66% compared to 94.4% nationally. 43% of our graduates matched into Primary Care specialties (Family Medicine, Internal Medicine and Pediatrics) which was an increase from 35% and 32% for the previous two years. The 57% who matched into non-Primary Care specialties included a full range of specialties from Anesthesia to Neurological Surgery and Plastic Surgery. Geographic distribution includes a total of 30 states with 39% of our students matching in Ohio which is a 5% increase in the last two years. All of our couples matched compared to a national match rate for couples of 94%. Overall this was an excellent match at a time when competition for residency positions has never been higher.
Congratulations to all of our students, faculty and advisors for a job well done.
