2019 Match Totals Show Continued National Growth for Family Medicine

Family Medicine notched another year of growth in this year’s Match, raising the total number of positions offered by 313 positions. The achievement marks a full decade of year-over-year growth for the specialty. Close to home, North Carolina’s residency programs had another strong year, with all community- and university-based programs filling 100% of their available slots which now total 120 incoming interns. And for in-state medical students, preliminary totals suggest more than 55% who Matched into the specialty will remain in-state for their training. Congratulations to each program on this impressive accomplishment and to all graduating medical students entering the next phase of their training.
