Match Day Reveals Future for MSU-CHM U.P. Region Students

May 1, 2014

Marquette, MI – The Michigan State University College of Human Medicine Upper Peninsula Region announced results of Match Day for eight graduating medical students, including Brookfield native Amanda Born Bernath. The MSU College of Human Medicine U.P. Region is a medical education collaborative between the MSU College of Human Medicine and Marquette General, a Duke LifePoint Hospital.

Match Day is when medical students across the country find out the residency program at which they will complete their medical education.

The medical residency interview and selection process allows each applicant to rank their top choices of medical residency programs, while the programs in turn rank their top applicants. Then, all of the rankings and results are computed by the National Resident Matching Program with a computer algorithm to most effectively link students to their preferred program. The process culminates on “match day” – when the results are revealed, and the new residents find out where they “matched” and where they will attend residency for the next phase of their medical training.

Results from this year’s match are as follows:
• Amanda Born Bernath of Brookfield, Wis., Family Medicine, Medical College of Wisconsin Affiliated Hospitals
• Samantha Cummings of Ossineke, Mich., Family Medicine, Marquette Family Medicine Residency Program, Marquette, Mich.
• Erika Hoenke of Marquette, Mich., Emergency Medicine, Mayo School of Graduate Medical Education, Rochester, Minn.
• Emily Johnson of Laurium, Mich., Emergency Medicine, Wayne State University/Detroit Medical Center, Detroit, Mich.
• Courtney Johnston of Marquette, Mich., Internal Medicine, University of Arkansas, Little Rock, AR.
• Laura Lozier of Baraga, Mich., General Surgery, St. Joseph Mercy Hospital, Ann Arbor, Mich.
• Jenna Racine of Ishpeming, Mich., Obstetrics/Gynecology, University of Connecticut School of Medicine
• Helen Thomas of Coon Rapids, Iowa, Family Medicine, University of Minnesota Medical School.
• Kyle Torni of Ironwood, Mich., Pediatrics, Greenville Hospital System/University of South Carolina School of Medicine.
• Ivy Vachon of Escanaba, Mich., Family Medicine, Marquette Family Medicine Residency Program, Marquette, Mich.

As part of the MSU College of Human Medicine U.P. Region, these students took part in the Rural Physician Program which offered them the unique opportunity to experience hands-on medical care in a rural setting while training at clinics throughout the Upper Peninsula.

“The one-on-one collaboration these students experienced with physicians in the Upper Peninsula during their training is excellent preparation for their upcoming residencies,” said Bill Short, MD, chief executive officer and community assistant dean of the MSU College of Human Medicine U.P. Region. “They have developed an affinity for our region and it’s our hope that once they complete their residency training, we see many of them return to care for the people of the Upper Peninsula.”

Through 2013, the MSU College of Human Medicine U.P. Region has graduated 234 physicians. Of those, 93 are from Upper Peninsula communities. Additionally, 52 Rural Physician Program graduates returned to the Upper Peninsula to practice.
