Two PURCH Grads Will Enter Residencies at Baystate

Today, as part of the NRMP Main Residency Match, two medical students in the Population-based Urban and Rural Community Health (PURCH) Class of 2022 learned that they will return to Baystate for their residency training.

They are two of the 89 interns who matched to residency programs at UMass Chan Medical School-Baystate.


Match Day, held annually on the third Friday of March, is when graduating medical students learn where they will do their residency training.

During their final year of medical school, students apply to, and interview with, residency programs of their choice. Then applicants and program directors rank each other in order of preference. The National Resident Matching Program uses a computerized mathematical algorithm to match applicants with programs. Applicants receive an envelope with their match results—this year via email as well—which the NRMP mandates cannot be opened before noon. Research using the NRMP algorithm was a basis for awarding The Sveriges Riksbank Prize in Economic Sciences in Memory of Alfred Nobel in 2012.
