After earning their M.D. degrees, new physicians take three to five years training in the specialties of their choice. The National Residency Matching Program is the process by which students are paired with training programs. On March 19, some 155 graduating UI medical students learned where they would spend their residencies.

Primary care physicians are responsible for much of the nation's health care and provide treatment for most common medical conditions. "We are very pleased to see so many of our students choose careers in primary care and to be among the nation's top schools for primary care education," says Dr. Robert P. Kelch, dean of the UI college.
