    ****Official 2012 MATCH Thread****

    Advertisements



    Congrats to everyone from SMU that matched yesterday. I counted about 25-30 people that matched just on facebook and i know of 15 or so more people that already prematched. These are just people I know off, but Im sure there were alot more matches. Despite the issues the school has, SMU does very well in the match every year and Im expecting an impressive match list.

    I came to this school in Jan.2008 and after my first couple days on the island, I said to myself there is no way I will make it here for 4-5 semesters and with the questions facing the school, I was already making plans to go back to the US. Well four years later, I fully matched into Neurology and am very happy with my decision to attend St.Matthew's university.

    Thanks studentdoc for starting this thread. I made this into a sticky. Lets try to keep this thread as neat as possible. Any non match related postings I will remove ASAP. Any SMU bashing posts I will remove, this thread is about celebrating smu students not bashing them.

    Congrats to everyone who matched!! I agree that it's bad taste to bash SMU here...the students matching this year haven't stepped foot on the island for two years, they experienced an SMU completely different from the current SMU!

    Give it a break, you can't even write a message w/o saying something negative about SMU. Who cares if these students have not been on the island in two years?! This is a match thread, not an avenue for you to slide a negative comment in about SMU.

    Congratulations to all that matched, job well done!

    Btw I matched at Emory University SOM for neurology! I also know of a person who matched neurosurgery and many people that matched university programs in various fields. Seems like the match went great for SMU. Congrats to all SMU students that matched in 2012!

    Just finishing up Internal Medicine in Chicago, matched into Cardiology beginning this July. I know of many SMU grads in great training programs, both residency and fellowship. In addition, I know of several grads working as attendings at top Academic settings. Only great things to say about my experience at SMU. CONGRATS to everyone in the 2012 match!!!! Good luck to all those finishing up clinicals.

    Congrats to those who matched/pre-matched...Your journey now enters a new level! Stay focused, and before you know it, you'll be done with residency.

    Applying for cardiology, smu grad could use advice

    I was wondering if you would mentor me in pursuing cardiology. I am currently a pgy 2, and could use some guidance in the application process, and help on which programs are willing to consider smu grads currently finishing up Internal medicine residencies..

    Thanks ahead
