Match Day 2019 Celebration in Chattanooga

2019 Match Day Group - Chattanooga

 

To celebrate the announcement of the 2019 NMRM Match Day results for 10 UT students, the institution hosted a brunch at the Hunter Museum of Art.  The ten students were already rotating in clinical rotations in Chattanooga for the month of March, and have primarily participated in their junior and senior clerkship and elective courses in Chattanooga.

 

2019 Match Day at the Hunter - Chattanooga

 

As occurs at medical schools across the country on Match Day, at promptly Noon Eastern Time, senior medical students open envelopes from the National Resident Matching Program  (NRMP) to learn the name of the program and institution in which they will be pursuing their residency in July following their medical school graduations.  

 

The group of students in Chattanooga had a quite novel idea about how they wanted to get their envelopes -- they requested individualized character pinatas that were stuffed with the envelopes and candy.  Figuring out how to hang the pinatas in the lobby of the Hunter proved a challenge, but the results were well worth the efforts.  We have to admit -- the IV poles were a cool touch.  University and Erlanger leaders joined the students and their families in a most enjoyable experience!  Please join us in congratulating the students and wishing them well as they continue the next part of their graduate medical education journey:
