Med Students Celebrate Match Day

Posted: Updated:

University North Dakota School of Medicine and Health Sciences' medical students at the Bismarck campus were among thousands celebrating National Match Day.

On Match Day more than 17,000 medical seniors learn which of their preferred residency programs they'll be training in for the next three to seven years.

Some classmates going down to Arizona. People go as close as staying here, go to Mayo in Rochester and the East Coast. Pretty much all over the country. So, it's an exciting time," says medical student Brittany Snustad.

To avoid bias, the matching is done through a mathematical algorithm connecting students to their residency programs.
