Shouts of joy were commonplace at the 2009 Stony Brook University School of Medicine Match Day, when 114 SBU medical students learned where they will spend their first year of residency training beginning in July. On March 19, more than 24,000 medical students nationwide learned of their residency match. The SBU students matched to major hospitals and healthcare facilities in New York, including at Stony Brook University Medical Center, 16 other states, and Washington, D.C.

"Once again Stony Brook University School of Medicine had a tremendous match day, which is a testament to the diverse and talented group of fourth-year and graduate students that we have," said Frederick M. Schiavone, M.D., Associate Dean for Medical Education.

This year, the Stony Brook students matched to a total of 21 specialty programs. Internal Medicine, Pediatrics, Emergency Medicine, and Anesthesiology were among the top specialty choices for their residencies.

Approximately two-thirds of the students will remain in New York State for their residencies. Sixteen students (14 percent) will stay at Stony Brook University Medical Center for their training. More women (62) matched than men (49) to sites, which has been a trend for several years.

Match Day is a national event, conducted by the National Resident Matching Program (NRMP), a not-for-profit corporation established in 1952. According to NRMP statistics, 2009 was the largest match in history and included the most applicants nationwide (29,890).
