HUNTINGTON, W.Va. – A Marshall University Joan C. Edwards School of Medicine fourth-year student has successfully matched into a urology residency position.
Chad B. Crigger, a native of Charleston, will enter a urology residency in July 2017 at West Virginia University.
“It is with great pleasure that we congratulate Chad on a successful match in a highly-competitive field,” said Amy Smith, M.Ed., assistant dean for student affairs. “This is the first time in six years that we’ve had a Marshall student match in urology. We are all thrilled for Chad.”
The American Urological Association reports there were 417 applicants to fill 295 spots across the country.
Urology residencies begin after the resident completes an internship year. Crigger also will participate in the National Residency Matching Program (NRMP) to learn where he will spend his preliminary year.
This year’s NRMP’s Match Day is scheduled for Friday, March 18.
