Meet the 2016-2017 Intern Class
On March 18, over 42,000 medical students tore open envelopes that revealed where they will spend the next years of their lives as resident physicians.
This annual ceremony, known as Match Day, is a rite of passage for newly minted MDs – a culmination of years of studying, lab work, and training.
50 graduates ‘matched’ with Stanford this year, and they will arrive on campus in June. “This is a truly remarkable class,” reflected Ron Witteles, MD, director of Stanford’s Internal Medicine Residency Program.
He continued: “The success of the match represents the collective effort of so many members of the Department of Medicine. I know that you’ll all greatly enjoy working with this superb group in the upcoming years. Please accept my sincere thanks to everyone who participated in recruitment – we couldn’t have done it without you!”
