Mapped: The future of the School of Medicine’s Class of 2022

In mid-March, the Emory School of Medicine Class of 2022 gathered for the annual Match Day ceremony to learn where they would serve their residencies. It was the first in-person Match Day since 2019, with 146 Emory medical students obtaining a residency that day.

Of those 146, 35 will spend all or part of their residency training in the state of Georgia, 34 will begin their training at Emory, and 28 will remain at Emory for their entire residency.

They were among thousands of medical students across the country receiving positions at U.S. teaching hospitals through the National Residency Match Program. Some students, however, participate in smaller match programs for particular specialties (such as ophthalmology and urology) and the military residency match.

In addition to Emory, students will receive residency training at other prominent institutions, including Harvard, University of California San Francisco, Johns Hopkins, University of Colorado, University of Washington, University of Pittsburgh, University of Chicago, Duke, Cornell, Stanford, Columbia and others. Earlier this year, two students matched in the U.S. military.

The specialties chosen most frequently by class members for their residencies were internal medicine (33), pediatrics (15), neurology (9), ob/gyn (9), psychiatry (9), ophthalmology (8), emergency medicine (7) and surgery (7).

Now that the class is spreading across the country to begin residency training, the map above shows the institutions that will be home to Emory graduates and the specialties they will be pursuing.
