Sunrise Health Graduate Medical Education (GME) Consortium announced its 2022 class of Medical Residents during the annual Match Day.
The match included residents for existing programs based at MountainView Hospital and Southern Hills Hospital & Medical Center. Residents also rotate at Sunrise Hospital & Medical Center.
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:
- Diagnostic Radiology
- 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 110 new residents will join the 266 current residents based at MountainView Hospital and Southern Hills Hospital & Medical Center. Specifically this cycle, 82 new residents matched at MountainView and 28 new residents matched at Southern Hills. The new residents will begin July 2022.
Sunrise Health Graduate Medical Education Consortium’s program received a substantial amount of applications for a limited number of positions. To list a few, the Anesthesiology residency program received more than 1,000 applications for eight positions, Diagnostic Radiology received more than 400 for five positions, and Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, the only program in Nevada, received more than 400 for seven positions.
The 2022 Main Residency Match® was the largest on record in the organization’s history with a record-high 39,205 total positions offered, the most ever, and 36,277 first-year (PGY-1) positions offered, 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.
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, Neurology and four fellowship programs, Addiction Medicine, Critical Care Anesthesiology, 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.
