Fourth-year students level up on Match Day
Tears, hugs, and cheers filled the medical school atrium as the Loyola University Chicago Stritch School of Medicine Class of 2018, along with other fourth-year medical students across the country, learned their Residency Match on Friday, March 16. The letters include the student’s location and specialty of the residency program where they will train for the next three to seven years.
“As our students open their Match Day envelopes, we celebrate the physicians they have become. Their personal goals and remarkable talents are individual, but they all carry forward the Loyola mission of dedication to service for others,” said Steve A. N. Goldstein, MD, PhD, FAAP, dean of Stritch. “One of our school’s core strengths is its diversity, and this is seen today as our first DACA status students go forth as champions of social justice to provide care for the underserved across the country.”
