MARQUETTE, Mich. (WLUC) - The Marquette Family Medicine Residency Program is pleased to welcome our new incoming residents, beginning July 1, 2018. The residency program is an education collaboration between UP Health System – Marquette, Michigan State University College of Human Medicine and Lake Erie College of Osteopathic Medicine.

The National Resident Matching Program (NRMP), known as “The Match” is a system that matches medical students with residencies and fellowships. During the fourth year of medical school, students begin the interview process with residency programs. Students and programs rank each other and the NRMP calculates the match through a computer algorithm. The matches are revealed nationally on the third Friday of March.

“We look forward to the arrival of our new residents.” said Brian Waite, MD, Marquette Family Medicine Residency Program Director, “It was an awesome interview season, and we’re very excited with their qualifications and enthusiasm.
