Match Day In Photos!

Meharry students complete their residencies in small towns and large cities across the nation. This year, 76 students matched. Fifty-one percent (51%) matched in primary care.

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.

On March 21, 2015, the day after Match Day, she headed to Ghana, Africa to participate in a mission trip under the auspices of the GE-NMF Global Health Fellows Program.

  • Kristen Crittle: matched in obstetrics and gynecology at the University of Illinois College of Medicine, Chicago. Crittle, who began writing her Match Day speech last September, spoke to the audience without using notes. She had everyone in awe as she talked about how she could never have made it this far alone.
  • Christopher Watson: matched in family medicine at Indiana University-Purdue University, Indianapolis. Watson left for Ghana, Africa, the day after Match Day, to go on a mission trip sponsored by the GE-NMF Global Health Fellows Program. Watson is also a Robert Wood Johnson Health Policy Scholar.
  • Paul Hannam: matched in family medicine at Memorial Hospital, South Bend, Indiana. Hannam is the proud father of three beautiful boys. The newest one (2-weeks-old) attended the ceremony, along with his wife, while the other two boys were delegated to daycare.
  • Maung Htein Thu: matched in urology at Barnes-Jewish Hospital, St. Louis. Thu was certainly the comic relief of the day. He said when he opened his match letter, he thought he had found a girlfriend on "match.com!"
