"This is a tremendous group of future family physicians," noted Margaret L. Dobson, M.D., residency program director. "We are pleased that the incoming group of interns reflects a national presence for our department and are looking forward to them joining the resident team."

We will happily welcome the new group of residents in June.

On the other end of Match Day, the University of Michigan proudly matched more than 45% of their graduating class to primary care residencies across the country. Twelve students matched into Family Medicine programs.

"As in the past, our students matched in excellent programs across the country from Pennsylvania to California and Seattle Wash. Five students matched in the state of Michigan, two of whom will be staying here at U-M. These 12 students are following in the footsteps of hundreds of previous U-M students who have gone on to become outstanding family physicians," said Kent J. Sheets, Ph.D., professor and director, educational development.
