86 residents matched with Cedars-Sinai this year

Students from Johns Hopkins, Yale and Cornell are among the 86 new residents who will come to Cedars-Sinai this summer.

Cedars-Sinai recruited residents from 46 different U.S. medical schools from Hawaii to New York, said Mark Noah, MD, director of the Internal Medicine Residency Training program and director of both Graduate and Continuing Education within the Department of Academic Affairs at Cedars-Sinai.

The medical center offered 87 positions in the residency match program and 86 were filled through the match process.

"The schools that sent us the most students were UCLA, USC, UC Irvine, Georgetown, Albert Einstein, Tufts, Boston University and the University of Illinois," he said. "We also have graduates from schools such as Johns Hopkins, Yale, Cornell, Northwestern and Washington University coming to the program."
