Med Students Make a Match

When the clock struck noon on March 15, George Washington University (GW) School of Medicine and Health Sciences fourth-year MD student Jacklyn Omorodion let out a scream and jumped in the air, becoming engulfed in hugs from her family. She had matched at her No. 1 choice for residency in combined pediatrics and genetics: Boston Children’s Hospital.

Every year students gather in Ross Hall to celebrate the milestone. At noon, medical students across the country simultaneously receive and open their envelopes to find out their match. The Class of 2019 will pursue residencies at institutions including NYU Weill Cornell Medical Center, Albert Einstein College of Medicine/Montefiore Medical Center, Walter Reed National Military Medical Center, Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai, and Yale School of Medicine, among many others. Seven students will continue their training at GW, and one will train at Children’s National Health System.
