Hackensack Meridian School of Medicine ‘Match Day’ Ushers Students Toward Residencies

What You Need To Know

Students on the cusp of earning their medical degrees from the Hackensack Meridian School of Medicine in June have reached another milestone: they have opened the envelopes, and discovered their matches to residency programs across the country. 

The Match Day® annual tradition took place at MetLife Stadium at noon - when thousands of other medical students around the country also discovered their own next career milestones. The doctors-to-be are on track to complete their medical education at the School, with commencement planned for June 6.

The 102 students expected to graduate are split between 75 students from the 2020 cohort who are completing the four-year track, and 27 from the 2021 Cohort who are finishing their medical degree in three years, as part of the Phase 3-Residency (P3-R) option. Students in the P3-R group will enter residencies across the Hackensack Meridian Health network later this year. Four students have already matched into Urology or Ophthalmology, since those specialties have a separate/earlier match. They are among tens of thousands who found out today where they will “Match” through the National Resident Matching Program® (NRMP). 

This is the fourth Match Day for the School, which received its full accreditation from the Liaison Committee on Medical Education (LCME) in February 2023. Students from the Hackensack Meridian School of Medicine have previously matched at some of the nation’s most competitive residency programs, including at the Mayo Clinic, the University of Pennsylvania, the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai and many others. Students have entered psychiatry, emergency medicine, general surgery, anesthesiology, neurology and obstetrics/gynecology, among a wide range of other fields.
