College’s fourth-year medical students match into residencies

Fourth-year medical students from the University of Alabama School of Medicine Tuscaloosa Regional Campus learned earlier this month where they will train for the next three to seven years for their graduate medical education.

Twenty-nine students from the Tuscaloosa Regional Campus, which is operated by UA’s College of Community Health Sciences, were among thousands nationwide who learned of their residency placements through the National Resident Matching Program, which coordinates the residency match process.

Three Tuscaloosa campus students – William Lee, Jessica Powell and Amanda Shaw – matched into the College’s Family Medicine Residency, the second oldest and one of the largest family medicine residencies in the country.

The largest number of students matched into pediatric residencies at six, followed by four in family medicine, four in emergency medicine and three in general surgery. Students also matched in other medical specialties, including two in surgery-preliminary, two in transitional-ophthalmology, and one each in internal medicine, obstetrics-gynecology, neurology, anesthesiology, orthopaedic surgery, radiology-diagnostic, medicine-pediatrics, transitional-dermatology and medicine-preliminary-dermatology.

Altogether, Tuscaloosa campus students placed into residencies across 18 different states.
