Across the nation, senior medical students found out their residency assignments for the next three to seven years. Residency is a key phase in very doctor's career - the time when a licensed medical graduate begins specialized training in their chosen field. At the USF College of Medicine, approximately 115 senior medical students were among the 14,359 nationwide participating in Match Day. The USF students selected Internal Medicine (20 percent), Emergency Medicine (13 percent), and Pediatrics (13 percent) as their top three specialty choices. About half are staying in Florida for their residencies, including 28 percent remaining at USF College of Medicine.
