Match Day occurs on the same day, at the same time, at medical schools across the United States. Student celebrations before and after the distribution of match results are a time-honored tradition.

The College of Medicine will host three events, with its largest event at University of Illinois Chicago. Students also will celebrate at the College of Medicine Peoria and the College of Medicine Rockford.

Match Day is coordinated by the National Resident Matching Program, which aims to pair graduating medical students with residency programs in their chosen specialties. Placements are made through an algorithm and based on various factors, including students’ rankings of their top program choices and residency programs’ rankings of candidates.

Media are invited to attend. Contact Brian Flood,, for more information.
