Medical Student Education
Friday, March 15, 2013
Congratulations to all our 2013 graduates!
Match Day is the culmination of four challenging and arduous years and, in some ways, is the most exciting day of the Medical School experience. Students receive notice of their residency matches beginning at Noon (EST) p.m. on the third Friday of March.
By UVM tradition, names are randomly selected by the Associate Dean for Students and, as each person receives the envelope, he or she places on dollar in a fishbowl. The last person called gets to keep all the money as a reward for their patience in the face of high anxiety.
The medical school sponsors a reception for students immediately following the Match Day Ceremony. The celebration then continues at a variety of local establishments.
