Members of the Florida State University College of Medicine Class of 2011 will find out where they will receive residency training — a defining moment in their medical careers — during a Match Day ceremony on Thursday.

During the 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. Graduating students at M.D.-granting 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:

THURSDAY, MARCH 17
NOON
RUBY DIAMOND CONCERT HALL

TALLAHASSEE


The ceremony also will be webcast live. Visit http://www.med.fsu.edu/ for more information.
