100% Match-Rated International Medical School

In terms of choosing a medical school, the options, and process which can be overwhelming. It can be noted that getting into medical school can also be time-consuming and a lot of people may not complete the whole process. There are those who cannot or do not want to wait for spots in their respective country’s foreign medical schools, which is why they go abroad for medical education.

However, not all or not that much international medical schools have a hundred percent success rate on “the Match.” This refers to the National Residency Matching Program (NRMP). Good news is that at the Medical School for International Health (MSIH), all the class 2018 applicants of here successfully matched and they are lucky to take up residency in prestigious medical school programs in the U.S.

MSIH director Dr. Mark Clarfield considers this an inspiring and outstanding achievement. It is happening in the week when the school celebrates its 20th anniversary in New York.

It was not until March 12 this year when the students received email from NRMP indicating that they had been placed. A further email from the NRMP disclosed the location of their respective placement.

As noted, the NRMP program allows students in the U.S. and the international medical schools to rank their preferred residency placements. The students are asked to rank their top choices among candidates. Those students with no placements attend an additional program so they can apply for the remaining vacant positions. This happens only once the placements are already determined. Administrative Director Leaura Navi of MSIH points out that such system permits students (those who have not matched) to apply for the vacant positions as soon as possible. Navi observes the increase in the number of students who joined the Supplementary Offer and Acceptance Program or SOAP for this year unlike in the past few years.
