March 17, 2009

On Thursday, 73 members of the Florida State University College of Medicine Class of 2009 will find out where they will receive residency training -- a defining moment in their medical careers -- during a Match Day ceremony.

During the ceremony, the FSU 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. Graduating students at allopathic medical schools across the United States receive their match information at the same time through the National Residency Matching Program, the primary system that matches applicants to residency programs with available positions at U.S. teaching hospitals.

The ceremony will take place:
