Matches Made in Pittsburgh

Fall 2016


Match Day rightfully commands the med school’s attention each spring, but what about all the envelopes being opened at other schools? Who are the brand new docs coming here?

Some impressive stats on the newest house staff: This year, 312 new residents said “Yes!” to Pitt and UPMC, and a total of 650 trainees (residents and fellows) came here. Nationwide, more than 30,000 graduate medical positions were offered this year. At Pitt, 98 percent of spots offered were filled—two points higher than the national average.
