Match Day reveals USD medical students residencies
The Sanford School of Medicine graduating class has 46 students – all who were placed into residencies. They chose 15 different specialties and will train in 20 different states. Eighteen students were placed in primary care residencies around the country with the rest placing in specialties. Nine students will train in residencies in South Dakota at least for their first year.
“The competition for residency positions is becoming increasingly difficult,” said Paul Bunger, Ph.D., dean of medical student affairs for the school. “The fact that 100 percent of our students are placed in residency programs is a testament to their abilities and the quality education they received in our medical school.”
For the first two years, medical students are taught on the Vermillion campus. Third- and fourth-year students are trained in Rapid City, Sioux Falls or Yankton.
