Delaware Hospitals Welcome New Physicians on Match Day


Last Friday, March 15, 2024, representatives from Delaware hospitals’ medical education programs announced which new physicians have been matched with their hospitals for their physician residency. All together, Delaware health systems are bringing nearly 200 new physicians to the state with many focusing on primary care. This is a critical step in increasing access to care for Delawareans as studies show that a majority of physicians stay in the community where they trained. Check out some of the highlights from this year’s Match Day:
Bayhealth – This year, Bayhealth matched with 30 new physicians to join its four programs-- emergency medicine, internal medicine, family medicine, and general surgery. These talented individuals will contribute to the ongoing success of Bayhealth's residency programs, which have provided care for almost 39,000 patients over the past three years. 
Beebe Healthcare – Beebe’s Family Medicine Residency matched with 4 physicians who had recently finished medical school, including one who hails from Sussex County. These four physicians will join the residents from last year as part of Beebe’s growing program. The residents will take part in a three-year academic curriculum at Beebe, gaining exposure and hands-on experience in a wide range of clinical areas – from the emergency and operating rooms to countless specialty areas such as OB-GYN, pediatrics, cardiology, ophthalmology, and orthopaedics.
ChristianaCare – ChristianaCare is the largest academic medical center between Baltimore and Philadelphia with a staff of nearly 400 residents and fellows across more than 30 specialties. Matches were awarded to 105 medical students this year who will become the program’s newest residents in July. 
Nemours Children’s Health – Nemours Children’s Hospital, Delaware has been matching residents for more than two decades. This year, Nemours will welcome 24 new general pediatric residents, 1 pediatric neurology resident, 2 pediatric physical medicine and rehabilitation residents and 5 medical-pediatric residents. 
Saint Francis Hospital – Saint Francis Hospital, part of Trinity Health Mid-Atlantic, welcomed 6 Family Medicine residents on Match Day. The three-year residency program will begin on July 1, 2024, and upon completion, the graduates will become board-certified by the American Board of Family Medicine (ABFM).
TidalHealth— TidalHealth welcomed 4 residents into its inaugural Anesthesiology residency program. The health system also announced the 6 physicians chosen for its General Surgery residency program, which is in its second year, and the 10 physicians selected for its Internal Medicine residency program, which is in its third year.
