March Madness, medical style: U-M Medical School students find out their futures
While most of America worries about matchups on the basketball court, a different kind of match happened Friday at the U-M Medical School.
And for the 174 medical students involved, those who love them, and those who taught them, it was just as exciting as Selection Sunday.
At noon, those students found out where they’ll go for their next round of training, after they graduate in exactly two months.
With a flurry of opening envelopes, they learned which residency program they’ve “matched” to, for three to seven years of training to learn a particular specialty and prepare to practice on their own.
