Mapped: The future of the School of Medicine's Class of 2018

April 25, 2018

In mid-March, graduating students at Emory University School of Medicine were matched with medical residencies across the country, at institutions from coast to coast — University of Washington Medical Center in Seattle to Jackson Memorial Hospital in Miami. 140 Emory graduating seniors participated in a match program. 41 students will remain at Emory for part of all of their residency training.

Most students were matched via the National Residency Match Program (NRMP) but some students participated in smaller match programs, including ophthalmology and urology matches, plus the military residency match.

Some of the most popular specialties chosen by Emory's graduating seniors in the 2018 NRMP match include: Internal Medicine (34), Pediatrics (17), General Surgery (13), Orhtopedic Surgery (8), and Emergency Medicine (6). 

Besides Emory, the institutions welcoming the most graduating Emory medical graduates as residents are: University of Washington (7), Cornell University (5), Duke University (4), University of Colorado - Denver (4), and University of Pennsylvania (4).

The map above shows the institutions which will be home to Emory graduates and which specialties they will be pursuing.
