The big picture

Jennifer Papac placing pin on map to signify her acceptance to Stanford residency program

Jennifer Papac was among the UC Davis School of Medicine students who learned where they’d be heading for the next stage of their medical careers during Match Day 2015 festivities. A majority of this year’s 102 graduating students (approximately 72 percent) will stay in California for residency training, with about 17 percent of the students slated for residencies at UC Davis Medical Center. Notably, more than half of the class (56 percent) matched into residencies in primary care – the highest such percentage in 15 years, and an important number given the growing shortage of physicians in that arena. Nearly 11 percent of the class picked advanced subspecialty programs such as anesthesiology, diagnostic radiology and ophthalmology. Other leading residency programs this year included emergency medicine, psychiatry, obstetrics and gynecology, and general surgery. Papac, who is shown adding her “matched” location on the California map, will pursue a residency in psychiatry at Stanford.
