For four years, students at the University of North Carolina School of Medicine have worked toward “Match Day” – the day they learn where they will spend the next several years as resident-physicians. Members of the Class of 2019 will receive traditional Match Day sealed envelopes, which contain letters showing where students will spend the next several years as resident-physicians. UNC medical students will participate in the complex process that matches the nation’s graduating medical students’ preferences with program preferences. Match Day ceremonies are coordinated to occur on the same date at the same time throughout the country.
