Match day cause for joy as 110 Yale Students find residencies

More than 100 graduating Yale medical students were among the 16,000 who found residencies around the country this year on Match Day. The National Resident Matching Program called it the largest Match in history.

The 108 Yale students matched all over the country, with the lion’s share—35—going to Massachusetts, including 16 going to Brigham and Women’s Hospital. Nineteen are staying in Connecticut for at least the first year of their residency and California lured another 17. About a fifth of the group, 22, chose either internal medicine or internal medicine/primary care. Other specialties popular with this group of graduates included neurosurgery, pediatrics, ophthalmology, and psychiatry. A complete list of the graduates and their residencies follows.
