USD Sanford School of Medicine Students Matched to Residencies
Likely no other event in higher education rivals “match day,” as it’s called, in the level of anticipation, anxiety, hopefulness and celebration. After four years of learning, training and testing, medical students about to graduate are assigned residencies that help them focus on a medical specialty.
Students apply for residencies, knowing their own interests and ambitions. But acceptance into a program of choice is not certain. And the process of determining who is assigned to each residency is highly competitive because of a limited number of openings. At each match day event, medical students are presented with an envelope that contains information about their residency.
USD medical students -- 34 in Sioux Falls, 15 in Rapid City and 10 in Yankton -- their families and friends will gather at 11 a.m. CDT/10 a.m. MDT on Friday for match day.
