Match Day is an exciting annual event where the National Resident Matching Program (NRMP) releases their results to applicants who seek residency & fellowship training positions in the United States. Match Day usually applies to fourth-year graduate medical students who are looking to continue their studies. A ceremonial event where participants are encouraged to celebrate their accomplishments with friends, family, and peers, Match Day is a great time to acknowledge the successes of our physicians who are continuing their medical training.
This year, two of JACCRI’s very own doctors, Dr. Matthew Kodilinye and Dr. Chadane Thompson, have been matched to distinguished programs in the United States. Dr. Kodilinye was matched to Maimonides Medical Center in Brooklyn, New York to continue his training in Internal Medicine. Maimonides Medical Center was the birthplace of Chief Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg, as well as the location of the first heart transplant to occur in America! Dr. Kodilinye is excited to serve the diverse patient populations there.
Continuing JACCRI’s Match Day success, Dr. Chadane Thompson was matched to Englewood Hospital and Medical Center in New Jersey with a specialty in Internal Medicine. Englewood Hospital and Medical Center is pioneering work in the Institute for Patient Blood Management & Bloodless Medicine and Surgery. It was also the first hospital in the country to offer patient blood management as a standard of care to all its patients. When Dr. Thompson graduates from this program, his fellowships of interest include Hematology-Oncology and Palliative Care - continuing the great work he has been involved with at the Jamaica Cancer Care & Research Institute.
Everyone at JACCRI is so proud of Dr. Kodilinye and Dr. Thompson on being matched to these impressive medical centers, and we are so excited to see all that they accomplish in being part of these programs!
