March Madness — With A Stethoscope
Just as March Madness grips sports fans across the country, another spring March tradition with the same excitement awaits the fates of 177 medical students with Match Day. At precisely 11 a.m. (CDT), Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center (TTUHSC) School of Medicine fourth-year students opened their envelopes simultaneously with students across the country to reveal where they will spend the next three to seven years as residents and what specialty they will pursue for their professional career.
Match Day is a nerve-wracking event that has played out on medical school campuses across the country since 1952. Months before Match Day, students begin applying to residency programs in their preferred specialties. Students visit sites to evaluate and ultimately rank their preferred residency programs. At the same time, administrators at each site interview and rank applicants.
