Medical students meet their match on Match Day
On Match Day, 176 fourth-year medical students in the UIC College of Medicine will learn where they have been accepted for residency training.
The UIC College of Medicine graduates more physicians than any other medical school in the U.S. and has educated 60 percent of Illinois’ minority physicians.
Friday, March 18
10 a.m. – 1 p.m.
Match results announced at 11 a.m.
725 W. Roosevelt Road
Match Day takes place on the same day, at the same time, at medical schools all across the country.
Partying before and after the distribution of match results is a time-honored tradition. UIC’s festivities begin at 10 a.m. and continue following the announcement of the match.
Match Day is coordinated by the National Resident Matching Program, which aims to pair graduating medical students with residency programs in their chosen areas of specialty. The algorithm for placement is based on a variety of factors, including the students’ rankings of their program choices and the programs’ rankings of candidates.
