It’s Resident Match Week! You know what that means…
Thousands of medical students with dreams of wearing a white coat and beginning their career as a doctor are waiting for their envelope with bated breath. This sheet of 8 ½ x 11 piece of paper contains the answer to question every college student hates being asked: “What are you going to do with your life?”
For all medical students nationwide that are eagerly awaiting Friday, March 16, 2018 (Match Day!), our entire team at Nomad wishes you best of luck and a huge congratulations!! Your joy this week is extremely well-deserved, and all of us here at Nomad wish you great success as you embark on the exciting journey of residency. And when, you’re ready to find that next job…Nomad will be here to help you.
For practicing doctors, Match Day was likely years ago — in fact, the average medical school class year of Nomad Doctors is 2004! Here’s a few more interesting facts about Match Day:
- The “Match formula” was designed by Lloyd Shapley and David Gale in the 1960s. In the 1980s Alvin Roth found the algorithm which the Match was based on. In 2012 Shapley and Rosh were awarded a Nobel Prize.
- 54.5% of doctors who completed residency between 2007 and 2016 stayed to practice in the state where they trained.
- 2017 saw the highest number of applicants on record with 35,969 US and international medical school students and graduates vying for 31,757 residency positions.
If you’re a practicing doctor, we hope you spend today reminiscing on fond memories of your Match Day and residency, but don’t forget that now every day can be your “job match day”!
No longer must you wait for one blustery day in March to be matched with your next career step. Doctors now have the ability to take timing and planning into their own hands by getting instantly matched with jobs that meet their preferences.
