UP CLOSE | UCSF Fresno Celebrates Match Day, Announces New Residents

Dr. Michael Peterson at Match Day 2018

UCSF Fresno recently celebrated another successful recruitment period. Two events were held. On Match Day, March 16, five students in the UC San Joaquin Valley PRIME opened their Match Day envelopes during a special breakfast at UCSF Fresno.  Congressman Jim Costa and Assembly member Joaquin Arambula joined the students, family, friends and faculty and staff for the celebration.

One SJV PRIME student matched with UCSF Fresno, two matched as a couple with UCSF, one matched with UC Davis and another with UCSF-affiliated Santa Rosa Family Medicine.

Later, the UCSF Fresno community gathered as program directors read the names of incoming residents and fellows who start training at UCSF Fresno this summer.

All UCSF Fresno programs that participated in the Match filled, representing a 100 percent match rate for the eighth year straight. Residency programs received 5,280 applications and conducted 1,057 interviews for 89 positions. Fellowship programs received 1,082 applications during the October/December National Resident Matching Program Match and conducted 165 interviews for 18 positions.

Congratulations to all new residents and fellows! Thanks to staff and faculty for making this year’s recruitment another success.
