South Alabama’s  73 College of Medicine seniors came together on March 18 at the Mobile Convention Center to find out where they would “match” for their residency training.

The National Residency Matching Program, known as Match Day, is the annual event across the United States when future doctors learn where they will be doing their residency.

Graduating medical students across simultaneously opened their envelopes with their matches at 11 a.m. CST.

In the Match Day process, each student interviews with different residency programs and ranks them in order of preference. In turn, the training programs rank the students. The matches are based on of the rankings.

Profiles of some of USA’s seniors who “matched” last Friday will be available at thevanguardusa.com throughout the week.

A link to the full list of all of the matches will be posted with the online story.
