2014 Match Day at the Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania

It happens every March here at the Perelman School of Medicine. Graduating medical students come together for “Match Day” with their classmates and wait for the envelope that will tell them where they are headed for their residency training.  This year, the big event — happening nationwide at all US medical schools — took place on Friday, March 21 at noon.

“This is one of our most exciting days in medical school,” says Gail Morrison, MD, vice dean for Education. “For our fourth year medical students, it’s the culmination of everything they have done as they move forward with their careers.”

This year for our annual Match Day blog series, student Karthikeyan Muthuswamy shared his thoughts and perspectives on his own Match Day experience.
