THE MATCH - National Resident Matching Program

Match Day is the culmination of four challenging years, and, in some ways, is the most exciting day of the medical school experience. Every year at a predetermined time, medical students across the country learn simultaneously which hospital will educate them for the next three to seven years.

Up until Match Day, senior medical students complete numerous applications and interviews at the residencies of their choice. They rank the places where they would like to continue their medical training. The residency programs in turn rank the applicants and the National Resident Matching Program produced the computer-generated matches.

During the program, the Associate Dean for Student Affairs will randomly select the name of the first student to come to the stage. Each student called will then randomly select the next student's name to come to the stage. Each student will receive an envelope containing a letter with information about their residency match. As part of another medical school tradition, medical students place $5.00 in a container as they arrive at the event. The last person called gets to keep all the money as a reward for patience in the face of high anxiety.

"I am proud of and excited for the class of 2024, whose match rate of 99.2%, coupled with the highly competitive programs our students matched into, proves that our medical students are continuing to compete successfully at the national level," shared Dr. Guzick, LSUHS Chancellor.
