SARASOTA, Fla. (March 15, 2019) – Each year, at precisely the same moment, thousands of graduating medical school students across the country simultaneously tear open an envelope. The single sheet of paper inside each envelope informs the graduates where they will do their residencies — in other words, where each will spend the first several years of his or her career as a working doctor.
It’s called Match Day, a tradition started in 1952 and operated by the non-profit National Resident Matching Program. The event culminates months of applications and interviews by fourth-year medical school students and hospitals across the country searching for their perfect match.
This year, Sarasota Memorial Hospital and Florida State University College of Medicine program leaders and faculty are proud to welcome the third cohort of Internal Medicine residents and first cohort of Emergency Medicine residents to the expanding graduate medical education program.
