More than 100 med school graduates will join Central Texas’ community of physician leaders.
Today is the day medical school students across the country have been waiting for: Match Day. After a months-long application and interview process, students finally learn what kind of doctors they will become (and where they will continue their journeys as new physicians).
At Dell Medical School, 100 newly matched residents and 12 fellows will join a diverse community of physician leaders who are rethinking health care — and medical education.
“Our third Match Day was a resounding success,” says Sue Cox, MD, Executive Vice Dean for Academics and Chair of Medical Education. “I am delighted that we filled all of our residency and fellowship programs, and I am anxious to meet this group. We had to choose from an outstanding pool of applicants from a variety of backgrounds and experiences.”
Applicants matched from high-profile medical schools at universities including Baylor, Cornell, Georgetown, Northwestern, Vanderbilt and UT Southwestern.
For the first time, Dell Med matched applicants to its highly selective distinction program: Care Transformation Through Innovation, Leadership and Discovery. Initially, one new resident in Women’s Health and three in Internal Medicine will engage in a nontraditional, mentored learning experience with colleagues across disciplines that’s designed to advance their leadership skills and teach them to leverage design thinking to discover new possibilities in population health. The physicians will play a key role in Dell Med’s efforts to measurably improve the health of its community.
“We’re overjoyed by the caliber of individuals our programs have attracted,” says Jonathan MacClements, MD, Assistant Dean for Graduate Medical Education. “These students reflect our core values and will help us to continue to advance Dell Medical School’s mission to train exceptional physician leaders who will transform health and health care.”
Currently, Dell Med’s 289 residents and fellows train and provide care across 19 medical specialties at more than 60 locations across Central Texas. Learn more about opportunities in Graduate Medical Education, offered in partnership with Seton Healthcare Family.
