Match Day 2015 did not disappoint. Family, friends, classmates, professors and mentors gathered on Fri., March 20, 2015 at the S.S. Kresge Compton Nelson Auditorium, as excitement filled the room, to witness 76 seniors from the School of Medicine learn where they will spend the next four years of their medical careers. Among those being matched were five Health Policy Scholars: Italo BrownSydne FordMovado LongTulani Washington-Plaskett and Christopher Watson.

Match Day, a highly competitive process, is the annual event where medical schools across the nation announce where students will complete their residencies. It occurs on the third Friday in March each year at the 155 medical schools in the United States.

Student matches were determined by the National Resident Matching Program (NRMP), a non-profit organization that uses computerized mathematical algorithms to coordinate the matching of over 30,000 student applicants to open residency positions at teaching hospitals across the U.S.
