Match Day family

"The Match, " or "Match Day" at Meharry is a day of family celebration when—in a crowded auditorium full of hopeful doctors—parents, grandparents, and other family members accompany final-year medical students to the podium to announce where the student will be spending residency upon graduation.

Nationwide, on the third Friday of March each year, soon-to-be graduates from across the nation are paired, or matched, with residency programs. All 141 accredited U.S. medical schools announce Match results on the same day.
