Surrounded by excited family members and friends, members of the Class of 2014 will receive traditional Match Day sealed envelopes, containing letters showing where they will go for their residency training, the first major step in building a medical career. Residency programs vary in length from three years for general medicine/family practice specialties to eight years for the most specialized of surgeons.
Match Day is the culmination of a complex year-long process that matches the nation’s graduating medical students with residency programs.
