What is Match Day?

For medical students across the country, Match Day is the moment when their lofty aspirations solidify into reality. Every March, fourth-year medical students learn which residency program they’ve been matched with by the National Resident Matching Program (NRMP). During residency, they will begin their careers as resident physicians, training in dozens of specialties at hospitals from Boston to New York to Washington to right here at home.

As our School of Medicine graduates begin to leave footprints around the world, we are proud of their achievements and confident that they are prepared to deliver whole person care to patients in need.
