The couple met a few days before beginning medical school at the UT Health Science Center and became engaged just hours before finding out they would be matched to the same program.

With the ripping of envelopes, more than 200 School of Medicine students learned where they would spend the next three to seven years as residents before launching their medical careers. Match Day, held March 20 at John T. Floore Country Store in Helotes, is an annual rite of passage for medical students and is held in ceremonies across the country. The 2015 Match was the largest in the 63 year-history of the National Resident Matching Program, with 41,334 total registrants.

Samrawit Tekle was matched to Creighton University affiliated hospitals in Omaha, Nebraska, where she will specialize in family medicine.
