A Match for the Ages

Yale Medicine Magazine, 2018 - Spring


Yale School of Medicine just saw the biggest number of graduating students find homes with residency programs. If that wasn’t impressive enough, every student seeking residency matched—unusual under normal circumstances, doubly so given the class size. “125 is our largest class in my memory, and the largest ever as far as I know,” said Nancy Angoff, MD, MPH, MEd, Yale School of Medicine’s associate dean for student affairs. “This isn’t the first time we’ve had 100 percent of our students match, but it’s been a while since it last happened.” Of the two students who didn’t apply for residency programs, one will enter an MBA program, and another plans to pursue employment as a consultant.
