The Class of 2019 at the John A. Burns School of Medicine (JABSOM) at the University of Hawaii at Manoa learned early today which U.S. Residency Program they have been accepted into as new doctors in training for the next three to seven years, which is required before they can begin practicing medicine on their own. The process of being accepted into post-medical school graduate medical education is called “Match Day.” The 2019 Match in the United States was the largest in history with a record 38,376 US and international applicants listing program choices for 35,185 positions, the National Resident Matching Program (NRMP) announced today.

At JABSOM, 71 members of the graduating class matched into 15 different medical specialties in 13 different states including Hawaii and the District of Columbia. More than half of them are going to be primary care doctors, on the front-lines of patient care, where shortages of physicians are most critical (these include internal medicine, family medicine, emergency medicine, pediatrics and OB-Gyn). By far those who matched into training programs on the mainland stuck as close to home as possible, matching into one of the 18 accredited Graduate Medical Education programs offered in at the University of Hawaii or seeking matches into programs along the West Coast.

54 of the 71 graduating JABSOM MDs in the 2019 Match will stay close to home, beginning their next phase of training in Hawaii or on the West Coast.

From mid-January to late February, our fourth-year medical school students and those around the country have been applying to residency programs, and the program directors leading those residency programs, have each ranked each other in order of preference and submitted the preference lists to the National Resident Matching Program (NRMP), where a computer performed the actual “match”. For the first time, UH Med Now live-streamed the Match on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/JABSOM/
