Video 2: JUST the MOMENT of the Match, "LIVE":
QUICK FACTS ABOUT THE MD CLASS OF 2016:
Sixty-four (64) total students in the “JABSOM” (John A. Burns School of Medicine) MD Class of 2016 (We have 260 total MD students (in years one through four), and 235 post-MD trainees, but only 64 of the MD students are seniors).
All 64 seniors “Matched” in a national event, which pairs aspiring doctors with the post-MD training programs that most want them. (That is why it is called “Match Day”).
A computer controlled by the National Resident Matching Program determines the Match. The results are timed so that everyone in the country who matched learns where they matched at the same time. That meant a 6 a.m. start (!!) for Hawaiʻi students. The “toast” the class gathered for on the campus lawn after the Match was appropriate for the early-morning: bubbly grape juice instead of champagne.
42% (27) of the U-H Class of 2016 is staying in Hawaiʻi for residency.
53% (34) will be primary care doctors, on the front lines of medicine where the doctor shortage is greatest.
