2023 Residency Match Summary

Cheers and celebrations marked Match Day in Omaha and Phoenix as the School of Medicine matched 92% of its graduating students to their number one specialty choice, accounting for 20 specialty areas. Michael G. Kavan, PhD, associate dean for student affairs at the school of medicine, who oversees the match process for fourth-year medical students, reported “an excellent residency match year.”

I couldn’t imagine being anywhere else. It’s completely surreal that after all of these years, and a lot of setbacks, that everything I’ve worked for is finally happening. I owe it all to my family, friends and Creighton who helped me grow, supported me through the hard times and celebrated me in my triumphs.
