Match Day Festivities 2010
The courtyard at Baylor College of Medicine was filled with 147 eager year-four students, their friends and families as they waited for the annual Match Day festivities to begin. With class selected theme-music from the Black Eyed Peas' "I've Got a Feeling," students rushed to the Match Day board at precisely 11 a.m. CST to grab their envelopes and find out where they would be living for the next four years. See release.
The 2010 results:
- 59 of the students in today's match are entering primary care residency programs in the fields of family medicine, pediatrics, internal medicine, medicine/pediatrics, obstetrics and gynecology or emergency medicine.
- 47 students matched with residency programs at Baylor College of Medicine.
- 72 matched with residency programs in Texas.
Match Day is the culmination of the annual National Resident Matching Program, which pairs fourth-year medical students with residency programs throughout the nation. After receiving a medical degree, physicians enter a residency program for another three to seven years of training.
