TALLAHASSEE, Fla.-- All 73 students in the FSU College of Medicine Class of 2009 received notification today of where they will enter residency training this summer after graduation.

Thirty-three of the 73 graduating students, or 45 percent, are entering residency in primary care specialties, including family medicine, pediatrics, internal medicine and obstetrics/gynecology.

Other students matched in anesthesiology, dermatology, emergency medicine, neurology, ophthalmology, pathology, psychiatry, radiology, general surgery, orthopedic surgery and urology.

“The quality of the programs to which our graduating students have matched is exceptional, validating the medical education they have received from a faculty that includes more than 1,500 of the best physicians in the state of Florida,” said Dr. John Fogarty, dean of the College of Medicine.

The residency match, conducted annually by the National Resident Matching Program, is the primary system that matches applicants to residency programs with available positions at U.S. teaching hospitals. Graduating medical students across the country receive their match information at the same time on the same day.
