On Match Day, students find out where their careers go after graduation and where they will complete their residency. Of the 189 fourth-year students participating in the match, 90 are entering primary care residency programs in the fields of family medicine, pediatrics, internal medicine, medicine/pediatrics, obstetrics and gynecology or emergency medicine.


Graduates of the Medical School and the Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences, with their friends and families, enjoyed graduation activities on May 21, 2013. Speeches were given by graduate student Christopher McGraw, medical student Faheem Ahmed and by commencement speaker Dr. Harold Varmus.
