Joan C. Edwards School of Medicine student, Chad B. Crigger will enter a urology residency in July 2017 at West Virginia University.

Crigger is a fourth-year student at Marshall School of Medicine and a native of Charleston, West Virginia.

According to the American Urological Association reports, there were 417 applicants to fill 295 spots across the country. As reported by the immediate press release, “This is the first time in six years that we’ve had a Marshall student match in urology. We are thrilled for Chad,” said Amy Smith, M.Ed., assistant dean for student affairs.

After the resident completes an internship year, the urology residencies process begins. Crigger will also participate in the National Residency Matching Program (NRMP) to determine where he will spend his preliminary year. The NRMP is a private non-profit organization that provides an orderly and fair mechanism for matching applicants for U.S. residency positions with the preferences of residency program directors. The NRMP’s Match Day for this year will be Friday, March 18.
