March 16 is Match Day

This year's Match Day Celebration will take place at noon in the MBRB. 165 fourth-year medical students (100 percent of the class) will find out tomorrow where they'll be spending the next few years of their medical training.

"I am incredibly proud of our students," said Georgette Dent, MD, Associate Dean for Student Affairs. "They are going to be matching to some of the state and the country's premiere institutions. We congratulate them and their families for everything they've done that has led up to this exciting day."

The students have been matched into residencies that cover 21 specialties. 56 percent of the students will take residencies in primary care specialties. 35 percent of the students will do their training in North Carolina, and the remaining students will represent North Carolina and UNC in 29 different states across the country.
