Congratulations Class of 2019!
On Friday, March 15, 2019, Einstein’s graduating medical students learned their destinies for residency, during Match Day, held in the Lubin Dining Hall. When Dr. Stephen Baum sounded the gong at noon, the students lined up to receive the envelopes that would tell them where they matched.
Of the 174 students who entered the match, 99 percent matched. More than 20 percent will join an Einstein-affiliated residency program, including those at Montefiore, the University Hospital for Einstein.
The top residency match for the class of 2019 was internal medicine, with 41 students going into the field. Rounding out the top ten specialties are: pediatrics (21), emergency medicine (19), surgery (10), obstetrics and gynecology (10), radiology-diagnostic (10), anesthesiology (9), psychiatry (9), orthopaedics (6), and family medicine (6).
We congratulate our students on this momentous milestone. Next stop: David Geffen Hall on Thursday, May 23, 2019, for commencement!
