Fourth-year medical students at the College of Community Health Sciences learned March 16 through the National Resident Matching Program where they will spend the next stage of their graduate medical education.
The 26 students were among the thousands across the country who entered into the Main Residency Match and received residency placements.
The students, who spent their first two years of medical school at the University of Alabama School of Medicine, headquartered in Birmingham, completed their clinical years of education (third and fourth years of medical school) at the College, which also serves as a regional campus of the School of Medicine.
To date, a total of 911 School of Medicine students have completed their clinical training at the College.
In addition, 16 new residents matched March 16 into the University of Alabama Family Medicine Residency, which is operated by the College. The residency, a three-year program and one of the oldest and largest of its kind in the US, was able to fill all its positions through the national match process.
A total of 472 residents to date have graduated from the residency. Most practice in Alabama, in Health Professional Shortage Areas – one in seven family physicians practicing in Alabama graduated from the residency – while other graduates practice throughout the Southeast.
The College’s mission is to improve and promote the health of individuals and communities in Alabama and the region, and one of the ways it fulfills that mission is by addressing physician workforce needs with a focus on medical student and family medicine residency training.
