Friday, March 15 is Match Day! An exciting day for medical students nationwide who will be matched with a residency program. Good luck to KU School of Medicine students who are matching on Friday!
Match Day is an important measure of the development of the family medicine workforce. As well as being the 50th anniversary year for the specialty, 2019 would also mark the 10th consecutive year of growth in the number of students matching into family medicine if Friday makes for another record Match day. The AAFP and eight other national and international family medicine organizations are gearing up to collectively pursue a shared aim of having 25 percent of medical students match into family medicine by 2030. Keep posted to AAFP.org for updates on Friday, March 15!
