Match Day 2022
For most fourth-year medical students, Match Day is an event that is anticipated with equal parts excitement and anxiety. It’s on this momentous day— held on the third Friday of March—that thousands of graduating medical students simultaneously discover where they will be training for their residencies and in what field of specialty.
Years of medical training and months of applications and interviews lead to Match Week. Held the third week of March annually, Match Week begins with students learning whether they are accepted into a residency program and ends with discovering where they will take their training.
To reduce the stress of “The MATCH℠,” it’s important to learn about the complex system that governs residency placement. The better prepared you are for the process, the more likely you will receive good news on Match Day.
