The University of Iowa Roy J. and Lucille A. Carver College of Medicine had 152 senior medical students participate in the National Residency Matching Program (NRMP) in 2023.
Pearl Sawhney of Fairfield was among the students celebrating. Sawhney matched with University of Michigan Hospitals, Ann Arbor, MI for post-graduate training in Family Medicine.
Among this year's class, 39% (60 students) chose primary care specialties, which include family medicine, internal medicine, pediatrics, and obstetrics and gynecology. There were 19 matches in internal medicine, 18 in family medicine programs, 18 in pediatrics, and 5 in obstetrics and gynecology.
Among this year's graduates, 45 will remain in Iowa for their first year of postgraduate training, and 31 of these 45 students will train next year at UI Hospitals & Clinics.
Geographically, the most popular state after Iowa for first-year training was California, with 14 graduating students receiving their residency training there. Minnesota (10), Illinois (7), and Wisconsin (7) round out the top 5 states that will receive Iowa graduating students.
