The University of Queensland-Ochsner Health (UQ-Ochsner) Doctor of Medicine (MD) program and Ochsner Graduate Medical Education on March 17 celebrated Match Day 2023 – a rite of passage in which applicants from around the globe learn who has been selected for which U.S. residency program to start the next chapter of medical training.
This year, 78 medical graduates from UQ-Ochsner’s Class of 2022 entered the match and received a 96% match rate through the National Residency Match Program (NRMP) – one that exceeded the national match rate for U.S. medical schools.
The 96% match rate marks the twelfth consecutive year that the school’s match rate has been 90% or above. Overall, more than 856 UQ-Ochsner graduates have successfully matched into US ACGME-accredited programs in nearly every state and every specialty. For the Class of 2022, more than 65% of UQ-Ochsner graduates matched in their top three choices for residency.
This year the graduates matched into residency training programs at many prestigious institutions across the country, including Ochsner Health, University of Texas-Houston, Oregon Health Science Center, University of California Davis, University of California Los Angeles, University of California San Francisco, Mayo Clinic, Harvard University, and the Lahey Clinic, to name a few. Students also matched at the in-state programs at Tulane University, LSU New Orleans, and Ochsner LSU Health Shreveport. These matches span a variety of specialties including Anesthesia, Emergency Medicine, Family and Internal Medicine, General Surgery, Vascular Surgery, Neurology, OB/GYN, Otolaryngology, Pediatrics, Psychiatry, and Radiology. Our newly matched graduates will start their residency training programs in July 2023.
