The UCSF-Fresno Medical Education Program filled 100% of its available residency positions during this year’s Match Day on Friday.
The residency program has filled all of its positions every year since 2011, University of California at San Francisco-Fresno officials said.
Match Day occurs every year in March and is the time when medical school graduates learn where they will spend the next three to five years conducting postgraduate training. When the choices of the resident and the prospective medical education program agree, the computer states that a “match” has occurred.
The UCSF-Fresno residency programs received more than 4,500 applications for 78 positions.
UCSF Fresno currently offers medical and surgical residency training in eight specialties and fellowship training in 17 subspecialties.
