FLORIDA STATE MEDICAL STUDENTS TO MEET THEIR MATCH

On Friday, the 118 members of the Florida State University College of Medicine Class of 2017 expect to find out where they will receive residency training — a defining moment in their medical careers — during a Match Day ceremony.

The students will simultaneously open envelopes, learning for the first time where they will spend the next three to seven years completing training in the medical specialty they will practice. Among the graduating students participating is former FSU football All-American and Rhodes Scholar Myron Rolle.

Graduating students at M.D.-granting medical schools across the United States receive their match information at the same time through the National Resident Matching Program, the primary system that matches applicants to residency programs with available positions at U.S. teaching hospitals.

The ceremony will take place:
