LSU Health Shreveport School of Medicine Match Day

LSU Health Shreveport School of Medicine Match Day

Today LSU Health Shreveport School of Medicine held a Match Day ceremony, where 121 students learned where they will go for residency training.

Applicants who didn't get into a residency position participate in the Match Week Supplemental Offer and Acceptance Program for unfilled positions.

At the end of February, students submit lists of their top residency programs, and residency programs make lists of their top students.

Match Day is also a strongly anticipated day for the LSU Health Shreveport School of Medicine. A computer algorithm then makes matches between students and programs.

The less competitive primary-care specialties were mostly filled by graduates of worldwide medical schools and osteopathic medical schools, this year's match data shows.

Mayo Clinic School of Medicine students waited eagerly, grasping the envelopes holding their fate.

Throughout their final year of medical school, students apply and travel to residency programs around the country to complete interviews.

Each class member received a sealed letter from the National Resident Matching Program. Family and friends joined the CWRU class of 195 students for the event at Tinkham Veale University Center.

Now that students know where they will be headed after graduation in May, they will begin making plans to move and find housing.
