Sunrise Health Graduate Medical Education (GME) Consortium announced its 2024 class of Medical Residents during the annual national 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:

  • Anesthesiology
  • Diagnostic Radiology
  • Emergency Medicine
  • Family Medicine
  • General Surgery
  • Internal Medicine
  • Neurology
  • OB-GYN
  • Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation
  • Psychiatry
  • Transitional Year (dual programs at MountainView and Southern Hills hospitals)
  • Endocrinology (fellowship, MountainView)
  • Anesthesia Critical Care (fellowship, MountainView)
  • Gastroenterology (fellowship, Southern Hills)
  • Addiction Medicine (fellowship, Southern Hills)
  • Pain Medicine (fellowship, Southern Hills)

The talented group of 112 new residents will join the 223 current residents based at MountainView Hospital and Southern Hills Hospital & Medical Center. Specifically this cycle, 78 new residents and fellows matched at MountainView and 34 new residents and fellows matched at Southern Hills. The new residents will begin July 2024, while others in various programs will be graduating in June.

The 2024 Main Residency Match® was again the largest on record in the organization’s history with a record-high 50,000 applicants (a 5 percent year-over-year increase), 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. A residency program specializing in a specific area is required for a physician to practice medicine, and is most influential in determining where a physician eventually practices.
