Match Day: UT medical students to open envelopes revealing their future March 18

The highly anticipated, dramatic moment when thousands of graduating medical students across the country tear open envelopes which contain their future will be noon Friday, March 18.

Fourth-year medical students at The University of Toledo will be at Stranahan Theater’s Great Hall to experience the annual Match Day ritual to learn where they will spend the next three to seven years training in their chosen specialty, from anesthesiology to general surgery to pediatrics.

The 2016 Residency Match Reception begins at 11 a.m. with the envelope-opening ceremony precisely at noon.

A computer algorithm administered by the National Resident Matching Program “matches” students and residency programs together.

Students spend months interviewing at hospitals and universities across the nation to find the ideal institutions that will best help them perfect their chosen specialties.  The students then rank their top choices, and academic and community-based medical centers nationwide rank their top student choices.

Residents are licensed physicians who care for patients under the supervision of attending physicians and represent the medical work force of tomorrow.
