Meet Stanford’s Newest Residents
An annual (much anticipated) ceremony for medical students, Match Day is the culmination of a year filled with detailed applications, extensive travel and rigorous interviews. After ranking preferences for residency programs, students are “matched” via the National Resident Matching Program’s computer algorithm. Medical schools nationwide gather on the designated Match Day as students open envelopes revealing their future physician training program.
On this year’s Match Day, the Department of Medicine eagerly welcomed 60 exceptional students to its 2019-2020 class of resident physicians. The impressive group will bring unique interests, talents, experiences and backgrounds to campus and to the medical community.

By the numbers
Of the 60 students joining Stanford Medicine’s residency program, 45 matched categorical to Internal Medicine. 2 students matched in a combined Internal Medicine-Anesthesia residency program (one of only three such programs in the country). 15 additional students matched for one-year Internal Medicine training before continuing their training in Anesthesia or Neurology.
The largest numbers of students who matched went to medical school at UCLA (7), Stanford (5) and Northwestern (5).
