At Nova Southeastern University's Dr. Kiran C. Patel College of Allopathic Medicine (NSU MD), 100% of our 2022, 2023 and 2024 medical students were matched with a residency program. This success speaks to the excellence and passion of our students and the faculty and staff that support them. Congratulations to all as you take the next step in your medical training.

What is Match Day?

Match Day is a rite of passage for students who are ready to graduate from medical schools across the United States. Medical students find out where they will be doing their residency training after completing medical school. Managed by the National Resident Matching Program in the United States, students gather in March of their senior year to open an envelope or email that reveals where they have been matched for their residency.
