Four years. 37,000 medical students nationwide. Hundreds of thousands of hours studying and engaging with patients. Countless dreams.

For medical students at Loma Linda University School of Medicine, Match Day is the moment when their lofty aspirations solidify into reality. They will begin their careers as resident physicians in hospitals from Maine to Texas to Florida to right here at home, concentrating in two dozen specialties. In 2018, 146 students matched to top programs of their choice.

As our graduates begin to leave footprints around the world, we are proud of their achievements and confident that they are prepared to deliver whole person care to patients in need.
