Hill matches to Walter Reed in national military match

HUNTINGTON, W.Va. – Gregory S. Hill, a fourth-year medical student at the Marshall University Joan C. Edwards School of Medicine, has matched into a military residency program at one of the nation’s top military health care facilities.

Hill, a native of Chatham, New Jersey, successfully matched into the Otolaryngology – Head & Neck Surgery Residency program at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center in Bethesda, Maryland. Hill earned his bachelor’s degree in Biochemistry from Washington & Lee University in Lexington, Virginia, and will graduate with his Doctor of Medicine from Marshall University in 2020.

Lieutenant Hill was commissioned as an U.S. Army officer in April 2015 and awarded the F. Edward Hébert Armed Forces Health Professions Scholarship. In July, he will begin a five-year residency program where he will train at renowned military and civilian institutions such as Walter Reed National Military Medical Center, Children’s National Hospital, and M.D. Anderson Cancer Center. After completion of his training, he will serve service members and their families as an Army otolaryngologist, treating medical and surgical conditions of the head and neck.

The military match is the armed services equivalent of the civilian National Residency Matching Program (NRMP), which announces its residency matches in March annually.
