On March 17, BUSM fourth-year medical students converged at long, white

Match Day 2017

An annual rite of passage on the third Friday

of March, Match Day marks the moment

when graduating medical students around the

country learn which residency programs they

will attend and where they will spend the next

three to seven years of their lives.

“Our students should be very proud of

themselves and their hard work. I want them

to stop and think about what they’ve actu-

Student Affairs Angela Jackson. “The road

has been a long and hard one, and this is a

moment when they can shine and look back

with great pride at all of the things they have

done. The residency programs that have

matched them are lucky.”
