Madison, Wisconsin - A total of 167 soon-to-be resident physicians at the University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health learned on March 18 where they’ll spend the next several years of medical training.

During Match Day — an event held simultaneously at every medical school in the nation — students in the MD Program announced the location of their individual residencies, which they themselves learned for the first time.
These soon-to-be doctors are matched to their residency sites based on a computer-matching program linking student preferences with available options.
Among those matching were 25 students in the Wisconsin Academy for Rural Medicine (WARM), which trains students in rural areas of the state.
Approximately 14 students from the Training in Urban Medicine and Public Health (TRIUMPH) program also learned their residency locations. TRIUMPH prepares medical students for working in underserved urban areas and provides most of its third- and fourth-year training in the greater Milwaukee area.
Nine students who are earning their MD and PhD in the Medical Scientist Training Program (MSTP) also learned their residency assignments. MSTP is funded by the National Institutes of Health, and is designed to create the next generation of physician-scientists.
