American University Of The Caribbean School Of Medicine Celebrates Match Day

Stocks in this article: DV

American University of the Caribbean School of Medicine (AUC) recently gathered students in the Class of 2014 to celebrate their success in earning first-year U.S. residency positions. AUC held Match Day celebrations at Providence Hospital in Southfield, Mich. and Nassau University Medical Center in East Meadow, N.Y.—two of the school’s major U.S. teaching affiliates.

“With this new group of residents, AUC continues its tradition of preparing compassionate, dedicated physicians to serve in a diverse range of communities,” said Heidi Chumley, MD, executive dean and chief academic officer at AUC. “As a family medicine physician, I am gratified to see many of our physicians-in-training answer the nation’s call for primary care physicians.”

AUC students landed positions in numerous competitive fields, including anesthesiology, general surgery, neurology and pathology. More than two-thirds will continue their training in primary care specialties, helping to address the significant unmet need in family medicine, internal medicine and pediatrics.

Initial Match Day results from the National Resident Matching Program ® showed that more than 250 students have secured residency positions at prestigious U.S. teaching hospitals such as George Washington, University of Miami Miller School of Medicine and Loyola University Medical Center. AUC students matched in more than 35 U.S. states.

Benji Ho, a native of Macon, Ga., landed his first-choice program, the family medicine program at the Medical Center of Central Georgia/Mercer University School of Medicine—which happens to be in his hometown. “Although I kept an open mind on which specialty to pursue, ultimately it was the continuity of care, the variety of cases, and the community-centered role of family medicine that I felt would best fit my personality and fulfill the role I see myself playing in society,” he said.

Ho, who chose to pursue medicine after earning bachelor’s degrees in architecture and linguistics, has chronicled his entire AUC experience on his widely read blog, Diary of a Caribbean Med Student. “With AUC’s close-knit community, relatively small class size, dedicated faculty, beautiful and developed location, good communication with the administration, and success of graduates, I felt AUC was the right place for me to learn medicine,” he said.

Burton Tabaac, who grew up just outside Philadelphia, became interested in the field of medicine at an early age. During his undergraduate studies in neuroscience, he developed a fascination with the human brain. Tabaac matched in neurology at George Washington University. “This is a moment that I have been striving to reach for the greater part of two decades,” he said. “AUC served as the perfect pathway to continue my dream of becoming a doctor.”
