Match in Time

As the 101 members of the SOM’s graduating class opened their envelopes this past March 16, it was only moments before the deafening silence gave way to shrieks. In a ceremony marked by several black-clad med students posing as “secret service agents”—sporting ear wires and headphones to gather intelligence—the Class of ’06 learned it was being distributed to residencies across the land. Their specialty preferences mostly mirrored those of the nation, with emerging physicians increasingly opting away from the fields that risk undefined hours. As usual, internal medicine dominated, but pediatrics also came in strong, with 10 slots. Ob/gyns, meanwhile, continue to shrink at Hopkins, with just one grad taking the leap into that specialty.
