On March 15, 2019 at exactly 12 p.m., students from the UNE College of Osteopathic Medicine tore open red envelopes to find out where they would be spending their first years as practicing physicians.

On Match Day, medical students across the country gather with their families, friends and classmates to simultaneously discover where they will be doing their medical residencies. This year, UNE COM boasts an exceptionally high match rate of 98 percent, higher than the national averages for allopathic medical schools (93.9 percent) and osteopathic medical schools (84.6 percent).

The residencies where these soon-to-be graduates will train also reflects UNE COM’s mission to educate primary care physicians. More than 60 percent of the class matched to primary care residencies such as family medicine, internal medicine, pediatrics and obstetrics.
