At medical schools around the country in March, members of the class of 2015 opened their personalized envelopes and learned where they would launch their careers as doctors and in what specialties they would conduct their residency training. “Match Day is one of the most exciting days in the life of a medical student,” says Stephen G. Baum, M.D., senior associate dean for students.

Most Einstein graduates were overjoyed with their matches. Montefiore was the most popular choice, with 25 students matching there. Of the 191 Einstein students who matched, 96 will enter the three primary care medical specialties: 56 matched to internal medicine residencies, 30 to pediatrics and 10 to family medicine. Other top matches were: emergency medicine (19), obstetrics & gynecology (13), psychiatry (9), surgery (9), diagnostic radiology (7) and anesthesiology (7).

Spikes in popularity occurred for family medicine (5.2 percent of matches, up from 2.8 percent last year) and emergency medicine (9.9 percent, up from 6.8 percent).
