UNM School of Medicine Seniors Face "Match Day"

 

On Thursday, March 20, the 72 students in the UNM School of Medicine's class of 2002 will take part in "Match Day"   a major event in determining their futures as physicians.

Earlier this year, the students submitted their top ten residency choices to the American Association of Medical Colleges, which coordinates matching students with residency programs. The match can have a strong influence on a student's future as a physician, and there is no guarantee the assigned residency will match a student's preferences.

The festivities will begin at 10 a.m. at the Tanoan Country Club, 10801 Academy Rd. NE, where the Khatali Medical Alumni Association will host a celebratory brunch. At 11 a.m. MST on Match Day, medical students across the country will open envelopes to reveal where they will take up their residencies and start their careers.
