Thrills, tears and jubilation mark Match Day for UC med students
Shouts of joy. Tears of jubiliation. The thrill of matching.
Match Day is March Madness for medical students, when they find out where they have been accepted for residency to continue the next phase of their training as doctors.
On March 18, 693 UC graduating medical students were among thousands of medical students across the country who learned where they were matched to residency positions.
Virtually all UC graduating medical students matched, including 108 at UC Davis, 111 at UC Irvine, 165 at UCLA, 132 at UC San Diego and 177 at UC San Francisco. Most will continue their training in California.
