beard_hallPharm.D. students from the UNC Eshelman School of Pharmacy received the second highest American Society of Health-System Pharmacists (ASHP) PGY1 residency match rate among schools of pharmacy in the U.S. with 80 or more students registered. 

The match happens annually to help Pharm.D. students secure positions in residency programs of their choice, and to help the programs get the applicants of their choice.  

“This is a huge accomplishment for many of our students, and we are excited for them to advance medicine for life in residency programs across the country,” said Angela Kashuba, Dean of the UNC Eshelman School of Pharmacy. “All of our students are making our School proud as they pursue employment prospects, postdoctoral fellowships and residency opportunities, and become the next generation of health care leaders.  I know they will take ‘The Eshelman Way’ with them as they continue to serve patients and provide healthier lives for all.” 

Following the first round of the match process, 77% of students who registered from the School matched with a residency program for PGY1, according to statistics from the ASHP (this includes students who registered but didn’t participate in the match). This places the UNC Eshelman School of Pharmacy 14% higher than the national first round match average. Twenty Pharm.D. students matched with residency programs in North Carolina, and 23 other states are represented among the programs where students matched. For PGY2 residency positions, 84% of students successfully matched. 

The second round of the match will take place April 14. Programs with spots still available will offer those positions to unmatched applicants from the first round. This article will be updated when the second round takes place.
