Graduating medical students at the Medical College of Wisconsin (MCW), and their peers nationwide, found out March 21 where they will be serving their post-graduate residency training.
Of the 183 fourth-year medical students at MCW, 178 students obtained first-year residency positions on Match Day 2014. The remaining five obtained positions through the military match.
Fifty-four of MCW’s graduating fourth-year students (29.5 percent) will remain in Wisconsin to serve post-graduate residency training.
Primary care fields attracted 43 percent of MCW graduates this year. Those fields include internal medicine (12 percent of the class), pediatrics (14 percent), family medicine (13 percent), and medicine/pediatrics (4 percent).
The three top choices of specialty were pediatrics (14 percent), family medicine (13 percent), and a third place tie between internal medicine and emergency medicine at 12 percent each. The remaining 50 percent of graduating physicians selected specialties including anesthesiology, obstetrics/gynecology, orthopaedic surgery, ophthalmology, radiation oncology, pathology, neurology, child neurology, general surgery, plastic surgery, thoracic surgery, urology, physical medicine and rehabilitation, psychiatry, dermatology, otolaryngology, radiology, internal medicine/pediatrics, and psychiatry/neurology.
