Match Day 2018

A record number of soon-to-be physicians applied to join the JPS Family Medicine Residency this year and on Friday 22 of them got the good news: They’re in. Match Day revealed the names of a total of 76 doctors embarking on post-graduate medical education at JPS.

“This year was an all-time record,” said Daniel Casey, MD, the Family Medicine Residency’s program director. Applicants this year came to 670, up from 147 the year Casey arrived at JPS (2005). “It doubled, then tripled and now has quadrupled,” he said. Nearly 200 got in-person interviews. The academic credentials of applicants has risen, as well. This year’s incoming class tied last year’s all-time-high scores on the United States Medical Licensing Exam.

The Family Medicine Residency is the nation’s largest and is the largest post-graduate medical education program at JPS. JPS sponsors 10 programs and is home to residents in three additional programs sponsored by academic institutions in Dallas.

The Emergency Medicine Residency at JPS also attracted unprecedented interest — 900 applicants, according to Ryan Kirby, MD, program director. Emergency Medicine filled 13 slots from among 140 candidates who got in-person interviews.

Match Day is an annual event — closely watched as an indicator of future physician workforce supply, according to the National Resident Matching Program. This year’s Match is the largest ever, with 37,103 applicants submitting program choices for 33,167 positions. At Match Day events across the country, medical school seniors open letters indicating where their lives are headed next.
