Match Day

On March 18, the Charter Class at USCSOMG celebrated Match Day, where we found out where we will be heading to complete residency training! The application process for residency is a pretty extensive one. We all completed an application that was submitted to residency programs back in September 2015. Soon after that, students began to receive interview offers from programs where they applied, and we have been going on interviews between October and January. After completing interviews, students put together something called a “rank order list” that allows them to rank the residencies in order of where they want to go. All of the residency programs complete a similar process with the applicants, and a computer system matches students with residency programs. These lists were due on February 24, and then we began the month-long wait until we found out where we are going. I had to fly frequently to get to all of my residency interviews. This picture is from one of my flights back into Greenville. I looked out my window just in time to catch a glimpse of the USCSOMG school buildings and Greenville Memorial Hospital! It’s been a wonderful 4 years, and it’s hard to believe we are quickly reaching the end of our medical school careers.
