Congratulations CNU College of Medicine with a 98.9% match rate for the class of 2020

Last year, CNUCOM held its very first Match Day. This year, they held their first virtual Match Day celebration. Students picked up Match Day kits containing champagne flutes, "I matched" white board posters, and "Keep Calm and Match On 2020" buttons. Filmed from the Office of Student Affairs and broadcasted via Facebook live, the event opened with comments by Dean Silva. Videotaped remarks by class co-presidents, Ryan Silva and Nadija Rieser, and a class video were shown prior to a champagne toast to the class of 2020. Promptly at 9am, the students opened their emailed match offers and then either posted or texted their results to be announced live.

In reflecting on the day and the incredible match results, Dean Silva remarked, "The hallmark of our training is now being nationally recognized."

Over 40% of the students matched into the primary care specialties of family medicine, internal medicine, and pediatrics. Students matched into competitive specialties of anesthesiology, dermatology, emergency medicine, radiology, otolaryngology, neurology, psychiatry, OB/GYN, pathology, surgery and orthopedic surgery. Sixty-two percent of students will remain in California for their residency training. Students will be completing their training at renowned institutions and celebrated community programs.

With unprecedented recent events and the cancellation of so much these past few weeks, it was a sweet time for the CNUCOM community to join together virtually to celebrate years of hard work and dedication, now culminated in the achievements of these impressive matches. It was a proud day for CNUCOM with a 98.9% match rate for the class of 2020. Well-deserved congratulations!
