“It isn’t so much where you’re going as what you’ll
do when you get there,” Brian Zink, M.D., assistant dean for medical
student career development, told the U-M Medical School Class of 2003 at Match
Day on Thursday, March 20th. The soon-to-be graduates gathered at the Sheraton
Inn Ann Arbor to learn how they fared in the National Resident Matching Program,
a computer-based selection process that pairs students with their preferred
residency programs. After opening an envelope and reading his or her match
result for the entire class to hear, each student proceeded to the large display
map and placed a pin in the dot representing the city for which he or she was
bound. As usual, the dot representing Ann Arbor received the most pins of all.
Of the total 156 graduating students, 146 participated in the matching program.
Nearly half, 71 of the graduates, will be doing their first resident year in
Michigan, with the majority (42) of those remaining at U-M.
