The transition from medical student to resident is an important step in the lives of physicians, and medical schools and graduate medical education programs (GME) share responsibility for equipping those learners with the knowledge and skills they need to build meaningful and successful careers. The National Resident Matching Program® (NRMP®), the bridge between medical school and residency, is uniquely qualified to bring together undergraduate and graduate medical education stakeholders to generate ideas and solutions that address a stressful yet potentially rewarding rite of passage. Medical school deans and faculty, residency program directors, and GME sponsoring institution leadership have a stake in ensuring medical students transition successfully to residency training and ultimately flourish in the changing landscape of American medicine.

At this meeting attendees will:

  • Discuss ways to strengthen the transition from medical school to residency
  • Identify tools and resources needed to make the transition successful
  • Gain an understanding of how Match-related resources can enhance the matching process
  • Address physician workforce trends and the impact on the GME community

This site will be updated regularly with information about the meeting program and speakers.

We hope you will join us in New Orleans!
