Match Day 2023

On March 17, 135 medical students at VP&S learned where they will begin their residency training this summer. The nationwide 2023 residency match was the largest in the 70-year history of the National Resident Matching Program. The celebration at VP&S was held in the Hudson Lounge at 50 Haven Avenue and featured remarks from Katrina Armstrong, MD, dean; Monica Lypson, MD, vice dean for education; and Lisa Mellman, MD, senior associate dean for student affairs.

“It is the greatest transition to go from what you have been, which is an amazing student and learner, to being the person a patient turns to in their time of greatest need—the person who stands up and does what is needed,” said Dr. Armstrong. “You are the future of medicine.”

At VP&S, the most popular residency matches were internal medicine (29), psychiatry (15), emergency medicine (11), anesthesiology (10), obstetrics & gynecology (8), and surgery (7).
