LSU Health Match Day 2018


The University of Central Florida medical school celebrated its fifth Match Day on Friday, reporting a student placement rate that once again surpassed the national average, a testament to a young program that's quickly establishing itself as a top-tier medical school.

"Today is an extraordinary day for our institution, the state of Louisiana and most importantly for our students".

The less competitive primary-care specialties were mostly filled by graduates of worldwide medical schools and osteopathic medical schools, this year's match data shows. "I'm also pleased that seven of our graduates matched in residency programs that we've started in the past seven years".
