LAS VEGAS, NV. (March 20, 2020) – Sunrise Health Graduate Medical Education Consortium announced its 2020
class of Medical Residents during the annual Match Day.
The match included residents for existing and new graduate medical education
programs, including Radiology Diagnostics based at MountainView Hospital.
The announcement was made during the annual event called Match Day –
when graduating medical students learn where they will be spending the
next several years as residents. Matched residents filled in all open
positions within the following programs:
- Emergency Medicine
- Family Medicine
- General Surgery
- Internal Medicine
- Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation
- Transitional Year (dual programs at MountainView and Southern Hills hospitals)
The talented group of 109 new residents will join the 195 current residents
based at MountainView Hospital and Southern Hills Hospital & Medical
Center. Specifically this cycle, 84 new residents matched at MountainView
and 25 new residents matched at Southern Hills. The new residents will
begin July 2020.
This year, Sunrise Health Graduate Medical Education Consortium’s
program received a significant amount of applications for a limited number
of positions. To list a few, the Internal Medicine residency program received
1,834 applications for 22 positions, Emergency Medicine received 750 for
11 positions, and Family Medicine received 1,074 for eight positions.
The 2020 Main Residency Match® was largest on record in the organization’s history[i] with a record-high 40,084 applicants submitted program choices for 37,256
positions, as reported by the National Resident Matching Program®,
which matches fourth-year medical students with hospital and universities
to find the right “match” for their residency goals. This
is also the first year in which all allopathic (MD) and osteopathic (DO)
applicants participated in one matching program.
“Another successful year of match results reflects the dedication
of our program directors and coordinators, faculty and facility leadership
in creating a comprehensive experience for potential residents,”
said Fran DeYoung, Division Director GME, HCA Far West Division. “Each
year we continue to affirm our commitment to excellence for our hospitals
and communities, and our growing class of residents continue to execute
high standards for the future of the programs at Sunrise Health GME Consortium.”
MountainView Hospital launched its Graduate Medical Education program in
2015 with the accreditation of its Internal Medicine Residency Program
from the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME).
Since that time, MountainView Hospital, Southern Hills Hospital and Sunrise
Hospital & Medical Center received approval from the ACGME to join
forces under the Sunrise Health Graduate Medical Education Consortium,
and continued to receive accreditation for General Surgery, Family Medicine,
OB-GYN, Transitional Year, Emergency Medicine, Anesthesiology, Physical
Medicine and Rehabilitation, Psychiatry, Radiology Diagnostics, and two
fellowship programs, Endocrinology, Diabetes and Metabolism, and Gastroenterology.
ACGME is a private, non-profit organization that evaluates and accredits
graduate medical education (GME) programs. Residency is the final phase
of a long educational process, required for a physician to practice medicine,
and is most influential in determining where a physician eventually practices.
