Match Day: Medical students to learn residency placements March 20

At noon on Friday, March 20, 180 fourth-year medical students at The University of Toledo will open the highly anticipated envelopes revealing where they will serve their residencies.

The 2015 Residency Match Reception will be at Stranahan Theater’s Great Hall. The event will begin at 11 a.m. with the envelope-opening ceremony precisely at noon when all medical students across the country will participate in Match Day.

Students spend months interviewing at residency programs 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. A computer algorithm administered by the National Resident Matching Program then puts the students and residency programs together.

Depending on the specialty, residencies last three to seven years and have a major impact on the training and lives of medical students. Residents are licensed physicians who care for patients under the supervision of attending physicians and represent the medical work force of tomorrow.
