The Match

Explore information and advice on the residency match process.

How Does U-M Do in the Match?

The U-M Medical School residency match rate is higher than the national average. We also have a higher percentage of students who apply to the more difficult-to-match specialties, and who aim for the most competitive residencies.

What is the Match Timeline?

Students match in January of their M4 year for early match specialties, and in mid-March for other medical fields.

Match Day is usually the third Friday in March, and is the culmination of the M4 residency matching process.
