TTUHSC med students celebrate Match Day

Posted: Updated:

It's the big day for senior med students across the country.

It's called Match Day, kind of like signing day for high school athletes, only for doctors.

The soon-to-be graduates find out where they'll be spending the next few years for their residencies. The results are sealed in an envelope and are opened simultaneously. 

"They didn't know where they were going to match and in some cases they didn't even know what field they would match in definitely. It's a very very competitive situation now days and so you see the great celebration and relief as they find out where they'll be over the next three or five years."

Students were placed all over the country, ranging from L.A. to New York, some even staying right here in Lubbock.
