Of the 116 fourth-year medical students this year, 114 were accepted into US residency programs.
Students then rank their preferred residency programs through the National Resident Matching Program® (NRMP®), or The Match®.
The National Resident Matching Program is a non-profit organization established in 1952 at the request of medical students to provide an orderly and fair mechanism for matching the preferences of applicants for USA residency positions.
The students applied for residency positions at United States teaching hospitals through the National Residency Match Program that annually matches students with residency programs.
The two UCF medical students who weren't matched this year continue to look for opportunities, according to the university.
