All UC Davis Medical School graduates accepted into residency programs
Ninety-one UC Davis School of Medicine students learned on March 16th where in the United States they will be continuing their medical training over the next several years to become licensed to practice medicine in a particular specialty.
The placements are based on the computerized results of the National Resident Matching Program, which uses a computer algorithm to match the preferences of applicants with the preferences of residency program directors to fill the available training positions at U.S. teaching hospitals.
At UC Davis, the majority of students (67 percent) will remain in California for training. About 15 percent will remain at UC Davis Medical Center. One third chose residencies in primary care, which includes family practice, general pediatrics and internal medicine. The most popular choices of training programs among UC Davis graduates were emergency medicine (16.5 percent), internal medicine (13 percent), pediatrics (11 percent) and psychiatry (11 percent).
