Title:In-person Match Day returns for 2022

Members of the School of Medicine’s Class of 2022, surrounded by family, friends, faculty, and staff who supported their dreams to become doctors, gathered for the annual Match Day celebration to learn together where each soon-to-be doctor would go for their residency—the training that follows medical school graduation. The crowd of more than 400 assembled March 18 at the National Press Club in downtown Washington, D.C., while another 600 watched via Facebook.

This year’s Match Day—the designated day in March when all medical students across the nation simultaneously find out which of the residency programs they chose matched with the programs that chose them—punctuated a tumultuous medical school experience, with their entire clinical experience happening during the worldwide COVID-19 pandemic and amid a racial justice movement.
