Class of 2016 Achieves 100 Percent Residency Match

By 9:30 p.m. on "Match Day," all of this year's 245 graduating medical students from KCU matched with a residency program of their choice, with 49 percent matching in primary care programs. This is the fourth year in a row that KCU has achieved a 100 percent match rate. Other specialties in which KCU students placed range from anesthesiology, neurology and obstetrics and gynecology, to psychiatry, otolaryngology, general surgery and more.

We continue to be impressed by our students' diligence and hard work, as well as by the dedication of our faculty, who provide extensive support and preparation to students. Efforts include early counseling on the availability of programs; a strong emphasis on primary care with role models, educators and advisors; a strong emphasis in our curriculum on physician fundamentals, including both the basic and clinical sciences; dedicated student support during the fourth year; and formalized national board review courses, to name a few.
