This past March, 178 soon-to-be Spartan MD's had their residency placements confirmed. As usual, the 2015 Match season was one of great pride and joy.
New Spartan MD's will be moving on to serve patients all across Michigan in both urban and rural communities. Beyond state lines, graduates will be headed to many of the nation's major cities like Detroit, Chicago, Indianapolis, Boston, New York, Los Angeles, Miami, Houston, Phoenix, Atlanta, San Diego, Denver, and even outside the country in Toronto.
As for specialties, 45% of the 2015 class will be entering primary care. The top seven specialty placements were:
- Family Medicine (27 graduates)
- Internal Medicine (25 graduates)
- Pediatrics (21 graduates)
- Obstetrics-Gynecology (17 graduates)
- Emergency Medicine (15 graduates)
- General Surgery (14 graduates)
- Anesthesiology (12 graduates)
The students had very exciting Match Day celebrations. In fact, this Match Day was special in that 25 students were among the first to celebrate Match Day with their families at our new facility in Flint, which opened just this past fall.
Wherever they go, we know CHM graduates will be great contributors to the communities they enter. Congrats and good luck to the Class of 2015!
