Las Vegas, NV — Sunrise Health Graduate Medical Education (GME) Consortium announced its 2023 class of Medical Residents during the annual national Match Day.

The match included residents for existing programs based at Southern Hills Hospital & Medical Center and MountainView Hospital. Residents also rotate at Sunrise Hospital & Medical Center.

The announcement was made during the annual event called Match Day – when graduating medical students learn where they will be spending the next several years as residents. Matched residents filled in all open positions within the following programs:

  • Anesthesiology
  • Diagnostic Radiology
  • Emergency Medicine
  • Family Medicine
  • General Surgery
  • Internal Medicine
  • Neurology
  • OB-GYN
  • Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation
  • Psychiatry
  • Transitional Year (dual programs at MountainView and Southern Hills hospitals)

The talented group of 109 new residents will join the 279 current residents based at MountainView Hospital and Southern Hills Hospital & Medical Center. Specifically this cycle, 81 new residents matched at MountainView and 28 new residents matched at Southern Hills. The new residents will begin July 2023, while others will be graduating in June.

Sunrise Health Graduate Medical Education Consortium’s program received a substantial amount of applications for a limited number of positions. To list a few, the Anesthesiology residency program received more than 1,000 applications for eight positions, Diagnostic Radiology received more than 400 for five positions, and Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, the only program in Nevada, received more than 400 for six positions.

The 2023 Main Residency Match® was again the largest on record in the organization’s history with a record-high 42,952 applicants, as reported by the National Resident Matching Program®, which matches fourth-year medical students with hospital and universities to find the right “match” for their residency goals.

Southern Hills Hospital and Medical Center launched its Graduate Medical Education program in 2017 with the accreditation of its Family Medicine Program from the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME). Since that time, Southern Hills Hospital received approval from the ACGME to receive accreditation for Transitional Year, Psychiatry, and Neurology as well as Addiction Medicine and Gastroenterology Fellowships.

Under the Sunrise Health Graduate Medical Education Consortium, which includes Southern Hills Hospital, MountainView Hospital and Sunrise Hospital & Medical Center, multiple other programs also received accreditation including General Surgery, OB-GYN, Emergency Medicine, Anesthesiology, Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, Psychiatry, Radiology Diagnostics, Neurology and four fellowship programs, Critical Care Anesthesiology and Endocrinology Diabetes and Metabolism.

ACGME is a private, non-profit organization that evaluates and accredits graduate medical education (GME) programs. A residency program specializing in a specific area is required for a physician to practice medicine, and is most influential in determining where a physician eventually practices.
