Fourth-year medical students across the country discovered where they will spend their residencies in an annual tradition known as Match Day. For 136 students at Penn State College of Medicine, their Match Day event at the Hershey Country Club on Friday, March 18 included a countdown to the moment when they ripped open the envelopes that held their futures. Seconds later, the room erupted in cheers, hugs and tears.

The event is the culmination of a process that began months ago as students visited and evaluated residency programs – and the programs evaluated them. Each student learned today whether he or she was successfully ‘matched’ with the residency program of their choice.

Fifty-one of the graduates accepted residency appointments in primary care fields such as family medicine, pediatrics and internal medicine, while the rest will focus on other specialties.
