2024 Match Day Excitement and Results!

March 20, 2024 by

Residency Match Day is an annual, nationwide event, when students find out where they will spend the next 3-7 years of their lives. It’s a high stakes day with a lot of pressure—the culmination of a year of preparing for and applying to residency—and by the time Match Week comes around, the results are out of the student’s hands.

Congratulations to the MD Class of 2024 who made it through four years of intensive classes, rigorous clinical experiences, and the high-pressure residency application season. In the fall, they began applying to residency programs and interviewed throughout the winter. The students then ranked their choices for residency training in order of preference. In turn, residency programs ranked their choices of students.  A computerized mathematical algorithm then matches applicants with programs. Placement details were announced at noon EDT on Friday, March 15, Match Day. View the complete Match Results here.

Now the Class of 2024 enters the next exciting phase of their medical career: residency! Depending on their program, new residents generally begin their training in early July. At UVA, students get a world-class medical education that fully prepares them for the challenges and rigors of residency training.
