LKSOM graduates secure impressive residencies, a fact that is often attributed to its reputation for providing superior clinical experiences. Temple / St. Luke’s students are no exception. The low ratio of students to attending physicians together with the high degree of responsibility provides Temple/St. Luke’s students with outstanding preparation for residency training.
Temple / St. Luke’s students have matched to residency programs in a broad range of specialties – view our list. Most of the programs are with university affiliated hospitals and are widely distributed geographically.
“When I was applying to medical school, I was given the advice ‘Go to the place where the residents and attendings are the doctors you want to become.’ It’s thrilling to know I am going to be one of those doctors at St. Luke’s.”
– Julia Tolentino, Class of 2015 and St. Luke’s General Surgery Resident
Match Day is an annual rite of passage for medical students, a day when they learn at which residency programs they will train for the next three to seven years. “National Match Day is truly a milestone for every medical student across the country,” says Dr. Joel Rosenfeld, MD, M.Ed, FACS, Chief Academic Officer, St. Luke’s University Health Network. “This is the day when medical residency programs match with their highest-ranked medical students, and medical students learn where they will continue their medical training as residents.”
